50 Over 50: Career Reinvention
Huffington Post and The Today Show have started a series known as “50 Over 50” in which 10 extraordinary older people are nominated by readers for each part. Pegi Burdick, now 65, relaunched her career at 57 with a financial counseling business, and helps homeless female veterans through Operation Welcome House. In 2009, at age 64, Richard Fahey visited Liberia for the first time since college and subsequently retired from his 40 year career as an environmental lawyer to found the Liberian Energy Network and provide thousands of lights across the country. Karen Love worked in the news media for 34 years before she went back to earn a Sociology degree and Master’s degree at age 65. Now 68, she’s become the outreach coordinator for Community Connections-- an organization to enhance the lives of Seniors.
