Vancouver, Canada. I was born there and have lived there on and off for (ack!) 71 years.

Unsettled destination:
Lima, Peru

What do you do for work?
I have a couple of jobs. I have my own business providing association management to medical associations, and I work for a company that manages events and meetings all over the world. I’ve done lots of travelling to places I would probably never thought of going with this company (Venue West Conference Services). But I’m retiring – so soon, I will be working at having a good retirement.

What makes you feel most alive?
I love fitness and the feeling that comes after a good workout. Especially in my strength workouts, when my trainer challenges me to do something I know I totally can’t do – and then after some hyperventilation, I actually do it! Plus I have a wonderful new grandson that just makes me so happy with his antics; the latest is blowing bubbles.

What does adventure mean to you?
Usually adventure to me means travel – when I travel to my favorite place – India.  Unsettled is a big adventure to me!

Why did you join Unsettled?
I want to plan a good retirement that’s not just laying on the couch and eating chocolates (not that this isn’t a goal of mine too!). I want to develop some goals for the first five years that will make me feel energized. And I wanted to meet some amazing people who were also in transition in their lives – that for me has been the absolute high point of Unsettled. We were sitting around talking last night and I realized how brave these people are and how committed they are to carving out a life that works for them. Makes me wish I’d gone to Unsettled a whole lot earlier. 

What does living Unsettled mean to you?
Living Unsettled to me means paying attention – paying attention to what I need to do, to what the other participants say, and to live in a wonderful city, Lima, and learn more about it. And be able to take in yoga classes in Spanish and actually follow along.
