About this Podcast

This is a podcast that will turnaround misperceptions about the aging process and the later stages of our lives.  It will provide a forum through various interviews of people aged 75+ who are growing older in a positive way to dispel the cloud of resistance and fear of growing older that is representative of many baby boomers.  

The podcast will be showcasing people from various walks of life who will discuss what they have done in the past, and continue to do today to give their lives meaning and to grow older with gusto.

Guests who describe what it takes to embrace their later years can energize, and change the focus of GenX’s, Millennials and Baby Boomers who have negative perceptions of this phase of life.

All younger generations can lose their fear of aging, embrace our later years & be another way of this generation making its mark on society.

Her expertise in working in the medical, B2B, and consumer markets with the older population provides a springboard for showing the way that our brains are wired to continue growing and achieving all of our lives.
