About the Author

As I was preparing to retire from industry, I began to think about legacy. But it was the birth of my granddaughter Elsie that inspired me to write my book Remember Me: Creating & Leaving an Inspiring and Memorable Legacy. Having been awakened to the power of legacy, I wanted to put out the wake-up call to the seventy-six million baby boomers in the United States and almost ten million in Canada to start now to plan and implement their legacy.

My undergraduate degree is from Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota. I earned an MBA and a PhD from the University of Minnesota, and then became an assistant professor of marketing at the University of St. Thomas in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Later, while in the energy industry, I was a senior analyst at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, publishing extensively on marketing and new product development. I was also a manager of market research and director of customer channels at Portland General Electric. Presently, I am now a consultant and a writer.
