Lita lives in a 55-plus community in Florida and works (and plays) with many people who moved there after retirement, but for various reasons have gone back to work. Some because they were bored, but many because their money just isn’t going as far as they thought. Others have gone back to work to get access to group health insurance, because it is just too expensive to buy on an individual basis.

Lita also is a faculty member in the College of Graduate Business and Management at the University of Phoenix.
