Where’s Connie

Connie is constantly traveling.  Since one of the most asked questions of any staffer at CCRP is “Where is Connie”  we thought we would just create a blog so Connie could tell you herself where she is from time to time.  Good luck keeping up!

Exposure is the only hope for peace; distance leads to more distrust and misunderstanding! This is painful!
