Florida, United States
I'm enjoying a vocation and career doing exactly what I love -- inspiring others to their happiest, highest and most authentic life. An advocate for all, I'm also known as Maura4u!
Imagine turning a childhood desire to be happy and free, travel the world to meet new friends and pursue what delighted your heart. That was the little me -- a 5-year-old dreamer back in the early 1960's who stared into the sky as airplanes flew over my suburban New Jersey neighborhood.
It's been a long and, at times, a daunting journey. I left law school midstream when my path was definitely not leading to happy. The decision to depart from script became my catalyst to discover and develop my own version of happiness and career fulfillment.
Living in the sunshine state of Florida and happily married (30+ years already -- how did that happen?) to the same great guy I met while a student at Boston College. We're parents of a wonderful, sweet, globe-trotting adult daughter. I'm a late-in-life dancer and super-size dog lover (we once owned a gentle 200 lb. English Mastiff, now in doggie heaven, who feared anything that stood taller than 6" -- yes, six inches in height).
I took my entire background in corporate management, business co-ownership, several years as a home schooling mom and travel to 50+ countries and turned it into a Life Reimagined. I'm an author, podcaster, international speaker and Huffington Post contributor, I'm inspiring others everywhere to "Live Happy - Inside Out."
