Author | Legacy Storyteller | Advocate

As a zesty Boomer, I’m gratefully continuing to create and contribute. I'm happily using my skills and experience to encourage others to live their best lives.


Now in my 77th year, I love being "reFired"! That’s NOT vintage retirement. Instead, this chapter is about family, fun, focused-purpose, friends, and fitness.


I still pen pieces about widows and money while writing legacy stories and poems. 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 significant transition such as the death of a spouse or retirement. Reinvention is exhilarating! I hope the tools and articles on my site pique your interest.


Want the full story of origin from my heart? Go here to read that.

Thanks for your interest in my work.
