As a zesty Boomer, I’m gratefully giving and growing . . .  using my skills and experience to encourage others to live their best life, too.


Now in my 76th year, I love being "reFired"! That’s NOT vintage retirement. Rather, this chapter is about family, fun, focused purpose, friends, and fitness.


I still pen pieces about widows and money, while also writing legacy stories, poems, and letters. I continue speaking at selected conferences and lifelong-learning centers. Plus, I help charitable organizations grow their endowments.


Since my guidebook for widows was published, I've moved forward in many ways. So can you after a major transition such as widowhood. I hope you find the tools and articles on my site interesting.


Go here to see many of my stories and what others have written or said about my work. Want a full resume and story of origin from my heart? Go here to read that.

Thanks for encouraging widowed persons on their journeys, also.
