Fredericksburg resident begins Peace Corps service in Vanuatu

Woodburn earned a Bachelor of Science in community health with a minor in nutrition at George Mason University in Fairfax in 2018. Prior to joining the Peace Corps, she volunteered with Vida Volunteer and Research in Kenya.

During the first three months of her service, Woodburn will live with a host family in Vanuatu to become fully immersed in the country’s language and culture. After acquiring the necessary skills to assist her community, she will be sworn into service and assigned to a community in Vanuatu, where she will live and work for two years with the local people.
