ABOUT THE CENTRAL OHIO CHAPTER
When a book about TTN, “Smart Women Don’t Retire – They Break Free,” was first published in 2008, a lot of women took notice.
One of them was Pat Snyder, a former newspaper reporter and lawyer. Finding the book at her local Barnes & Noble in Columbus, Ohio, Pat recalls being so excited that she and a group of others decided immediately to form a chapter. By 2009, the group was up and running.
For Pat, who writes a column called “Balancing Act” for 22 newspapers in Ohio and contributes a regular column to TTN as well entitled "On Balance." the benefits of TTN are tremendous. “I’m always writing about the need for balance between career and family and between personal and professional life,” she said. “TTN is all about finding that balance.”
