About the Author

Keekee Minor was raised in Steubenville, Ohio. She is a graduate of the Laurel School in Cleveland and Colorado College in Colorado Springs. After graduating college, she hitchhiked through Europe and the Middle East before serving as a Peace Corps volunteer in Bombay, India, and later as country director for the Peace Corps in the Marshall Islands. Her career was focused on population and family planning. She served as chief of field operations for the Office of Family Planning in the U.S. Office of Economic Opportunity, and assumed a similar position when the program was transferred to the Department of Health, Education and Welfare (now the Department of Health and Human Services). She moved from Washington, DC, to New York City to become director of field operations for Planned Parenthood's International Program-Family Planning International Assistance (FPIA)-and traveled extensively in the regions where their five program offices were located. Other positions plus various consultancies brought the number of countries visited to more than eighty. She is now writing about her travels and enjoying summers in Chautauqua, New York, where her family has owned a cottage since 1945.
