I currently live in Ohio with my husband of 50+ years, Bob, in our downsized, thrive-in-place home. We are loving the process of organizing, upgrading, and completing our “last nest.” During the summer of 2019, Bob and I moved from Wichita, Kansas, to my hometown so that we could be closer to extended family and wonderful friends from my high school days. Our three adult children (along with their spouses and our 9 grandchildren) live in Texas and Colorado. Nevertheless, we savor our visits to see them all whenever we can. FaceTime helps a lot!

I spent over 35 years as a professional interior designer and simply loved my career and all of my clients. Since then, I have developed and taught several Continuing Ed courses on Baby Boomer Marketing, Aging in Place Safely, and Home Trends of the Future for the 50+.


Presently, I am honing my passion for empowering women through weekly blog posts, staying current on all topics related to aging gracefully for the 50+, as well as a bit of design consulting! Because I have no intention of retiring completely, there are other exciting projects in the works that I will be sharing.

Please join my Facebook Group, Lifesizing® for the 50+, to learn more:


One of my greatest passions in life is exploring how we can care for the unique minds, bodies, and spirits God has blessed us with as we age.
I believe that all of us can experience aging well in exceptionally healthy homes while living beautiful, healthy lives… and I intend to share these discoveries with all of you!

You may be wondering: what in the world is LifeSizing®? It’s simple! Sizing your life for the stage you’re in. It challenges us to weigh needs vs. wants, figure out what quality spaces look like, and decide how to best prepare for next stage of life. LifeSizing® is all about living by choice, not by chance. You have a part in designing your life!


Together we will unlock the keys of LifeSizing® that will enable you to begin embracing and enjoying your renewed, purposeful life. You deserve to live a life full of zestful energy with a refreshed perspective, regardless of your age or life stage. My goal is to promote the wonderful, on trend realities of aging gracefully with posts on how to restore vitality and wellness in our lives as well as adding beauty, function, and safety to our homes.

Another aim I strive for is to bust and destroy outdated and untrue perceptions regarding aging in women. Truthfully, this is an exceptionally exciting time to be a woman in her 50’s 60’s or 70’s and I cannot wait to journey through this new day of aging with you all!
