About the Book

THINKING ABOUT RETIREMENT? THINK AGAIN is a practical guide to help midlife and older adults evaluate their present status and explore life options. By means of a specific, step-by-step easily read style, individuals are guided in evaluating their assets and present status, exploring alternatives, setting goals and implementing specific job search, business, volunteer or other retirement strategies.
The author’s many years’ experience counseling, teaching and presenting workshops and classes for career exploration, goal setting and job search strategies, has provided the framework for the book.

She served as Supervisor of Testing at the Washington State College counseling center. She has been Supervisor of Counseling Services at the Rehabilitation Institute in Kansas City and developed an innovative group program to assist persons receiving Social Security Disability Insurance to explore vocational alternatives and return to work. An article describing the program was published in the Journal of Rehabilitation. She developed a pre-retirement planning program offered to employees at Hallmark Cards, Inc. in Kansas City. She was an instructor at the Metropolitan Community Colleges where she wrote and was funded for several grants, including “The 55+ Older Worker Program” which was twice given the top award for a program of its kind in Missouri.
