I take pride in my involvement with aging adults and I’m motivated to challenge and change our cultural misconception of the minimized value of adults aging in our modern fast-paced society. I hope you’ll join me!
To my good fortune, my parents did a wonderful thing for my brother, sister and me by encouraging us to have time with our grandparents on a regular basis. I believe this strong grandparent influence helped me gravitate to older adults throughout my life with comfort and ease.
As I found myself nearing retirement age, I left a high-pressure career in marketing sales and became certified as a Health Coach and Yoga Instructor. I’ve also created a class called Strength & Balance, which combines yoga stretches, hand weights, balance challenges, and dance moves, all choreographed to music from the ’50s and up.
Through teaching, I’ve had the opportunity to meet and become friends with people from diverse careers and backgrounds, with students up to 102 years of age. I’ve been welcomed into the inner circle of my older friends, who have blessed me with their unique perspectives on aging, longevity, and what “quality of life” really means.
As the producer of a broadcast called Aging Gracefully TV, I have the opportunity to interview and spotlight seniors and senior advocates who work to benefit our aging population in some capacity so I can paint a new picture of what aging can look like for all of us!
As a mother of three, and grandmother of four, I consider myself qualified to straddle both sides of the fence, learning from those older than me, while attempting to persuade the younger generations to take a better look at what they haven’t been seeing all along!
