Defying Age from the Boardroom to the Stage

I retired from a career in Corporate America that spanned 35 years. My perception of a life of leisure doing whatever I wanted was suddenly shattered by a diagnosis of cancer. This is my story of how I fought back to get healthy by charting a new career path in the fitness industry. This is my personal fight against ageist stereotypes and negative perceptions of aging to become a Figure Competitor on the verge of obtaining Professional Status (Pro Card). Defying my age to be the best possible me.
