I began contributing to Northwest 50+ (formerly known as Northwest Boomer and Senior News) on what was supposed to be a temporary basis in August of 2013 when one of their regular writers needed time off for a personal issue. I have been contributing one or two articles each month since then. This publication has allowed me to explore the health and lifestyle issues of older people and I’ve really enjoyed everyone I’ve met. Not only am I inspired to new heights of creativity given some of the people I’ve met through these assignments, I’m more aware of healthy aging and how to achieve that for myself.
NW Boomer and Senior News publishes four editions monthly covering the Portland Metro/Vancouver area, Linn and Benton counties, Marion and Polk counties and Lane County. I regularly contribute articles and photographs to the Lane edition. Until March of 2015 they did not publish all of their articles from each edition online; they do now.
