Mary Lou Floyd 

Mary Lou Floyd, co-founder of a blog known as Second Lives Club, knew she’d made an important connection when she heard about The Transition Network. “I noticed that TTN’s mission was very similar to that of Second Lives Club,” she recalls. An entrepreneur at heart, she remembers thinking the two entities could work together somehow. So she became a member. It didn’t take long to click with other new TTNers. MORE

Marilyn Stetar 
Still In the Process of Retirement

“Retirement is not an event,” points out TTN veteran Marilyn Stetar, “it’s a process.” At least 10 years ago, Marilyn read an article about The Transition Network in The New York Times and knew right away. She was anticipating her own retirement from the M&M Mars candy company, and thought, “That sounds fantastic.”  She met with other members at a dinner in Greenwich Village and was sold. More...

Pamela Brown 

Exploring for New Experiences 
and An Emotional ‘Home’ 

 TTN is for exploring women -- women who search for both new experiences and an emotional “home.”   Both objectives can be met through TTN’s peer groups and Special Interest Groups (SIGs).
After a busy whirlwind of sampling TTN activities to see what suited her best,  the breakthrough for new member Pamela Brown came with the recent Third Thursday program called “People and Passions”.  It was an inspirational experience for Pam. More...

Jamie Russell

Jamie Russell is a pioneer TTNer – one of the first wave of members who created the first two peer groups, defining -- through their own experience -- the peer group concept.  Her group still meets, after nearly 14 years of sharing. More...

Sandy Merrill

Sandy Merrill recalls that she heard about TTN, probably through a newspaper article, when she was in her 50s.  But she didn’t act on that knowledge right away.
“I kind of put it in ‘deep storage’, thinking it was a good idea for my retirement years.”
But later, after a career as an executive in hospitals and nonprofit organizations, Sandy decided she wanted to do something different – but somewhat related.  Her solution was to go back to school.  Five years ago, she began training at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in Manhattan and, in the process, created a new identity for herself as a certified nutrition and wellness coach.
