Connections to people, places, and purpose for social wellness and healthy aging
Has your life gone according to your Plan A? Is a life transition calling for you to devise Plan B or even C? Life has many unexpected twists and turns - geographic moves, job loss, changes in relationships, and changes in health. Sometimes we find ourselves more alone than we would like at age 50+. Perhaps we are living solo or far away from family and close friends. Do you have someone living closeby whom you can really talk to - someone who has your back?
Research studies prove that meaningful social connections - people we can really talk to - are as important to healthy aging as eating well and not smoking. Plan B Connections offers strategies and resources to forge stronger social ties.
I have lived in 7 states and worked as an attorney, a career counselor, a recruiter, an office manager, a trainer, a program designer, and a director of career services. I have earned a bachelor's degree, a master's degree, and a law degree, I have had 11 jobs since age 25, and I achieved my dream of delivering a TEDx talk. All these pivots happened because of my ability to see possibilities and devise Plan B connections.

In May 2017, I moved from Minnesota to Naples, Florida. Naples is promoting healthy aging through implementing the Blue Zones Project strategies developed by Dan Buettner. There are 9 Blue Zones Project strategies to improve your overall health and age well. My Naples Plan B Connections Meetup Group connects individuals interested in making meaningful social connections for healthy aging.
May your life be filled with meaningful Plan B Connections!
