Musings of a woman who left her corporate career to become a caregiver for elderly parents, wrote a book and found her way back to corporate - with love, instead of fear, leading the way.

Exciting News

Starting the year off with some exciting news....
I am delighted to announce that I have accepted a new position as Executive Vice President/Managing Director for the LA offices of FaceTime Strategy. FaceTime Strategy is a full-service technology enabled marketing agency with many large clients. I have the awesome opportunity to be a key spokesperson for FaceTime's Boomer and Senior marketing initiatives.
Several people have contacted me this past week to say they heard from Silverado that I had left the company and were incredulous because of my obvious deeply personal and professional commitment to the company. I am still committed to the success of Silverado and look forward to working with them on special projects in the future. Memory-care is a small but critically important part of the senior lifestyle continuum and Silverado is truly a leader in that field. I was proud to work for them for nearly four years, especially collaborating with Loren Shook and Steve Winner on their award-winning book, "The Silverado Story."
My official start date with FaceTime Strategy is February 1st. Till then, I'm catching up with writing projects and spending quality time with family, friends and pets. Our niece, Lindsey (aka Cupcake), will be here from Seattle next week.
For those of you interested in the latest trends in marketing to Boomers and Seniors, DO NOT MISS the "What's Next Boomer Business Summit" - happening March 28th at Marriott Wardman Park in Washington, D.C. Incredible speakers and unparalleled is limited. I will be there again this year to soak up all the wisdom and innovation related to products, services and job opportunities resulting from the societal sea change coming with aging Boomers. The summit is a separate event that is part of the annual American Society on Aging Conference.
HAPPY 2012!
