A Mission to Inspire
“My mission is to inspire boomers and seniors to stretch their vision for their lives.

Finding purpose, giving, and staying connected to others helps us discover those unexpected magical moments in everyday living”, exclaims Jan. “After all, this is a wonderful season in life and I feel we should seize every opportunity to transform senior moments into golden moments because growing older is a privilege denied to many!”
