Elena Peters is a popular midlife blogger ElenaOPeters.com. She has her B.A. in Economics and spent most of her working career in upper management positions as well as consulting as an independent contractor to local media publications. At the age of fifty, she left all that behind to focus full-time on her on-line blogging business. On a personal note, Elena is a wannabe empty nester, surviving solely on chocolate and caffeine. She juggles a blended family of 4 adult kids, 4 dogs, and 2 cats that are absolutely oblivious to that fact that mom is officially retired and not their personal assistants. She hopes to inspire other mid-lifers to find serenity and purpose in the prime of their lives.
