The Mid Life Guru

Making the Most of Life After 50 is quite the adventure!! Learning fresh ways to approach old ideas plus discovering new opportunities provides great information to share on my blog.  I have been married for over 30 years and have three amazing grown children, their just as amazing spouses, and two adorable grandsons.   My blogging has led me into my current role as a Social Media Consultant, helping other midlifers grasp the social media world. I am passionate about public education, having served on my local school board for over 20 years.  and occasionally substitute teaching in our local high schools. Volunteering for my church in the area of public affairs takes up a lot of time as well.  I love writing, reading, baking, making and keeping friends, boating, and sewing.
