Anne Marie Cummings

Anne Marie graduated from Carleton University in 1987 with a double major in Psychology and Law and since graduation has had 4 successful and diverse careers in the past 30 years. 

Immediately after graduating she joined a technology firm and learned how to work with large corporations to assess their business challenges and provide software and hardware solutions to resolve those challenges. 

In 2000, after 13 years, she left the technology industry to follow her passion for interior design and she established and operated  her  decorating firm for several years and then transition it to qualified staff so she could expand her interior business into Real Estate Investing and started flipping houses.  Her interest was to make old houses new again and sell them at a profit to people who wanted a turn key home. 

As more and more of her friends were retiring she noticed that many were losing their identity and drifting into a sedate lifestyle. She was determined this would not be the direction she would take and was determined to make the final chapter of her life the best yet.  Anne Marie then decided to write a book about reinventing oneself in retirement and living your best life to share with her peers the art of the possible.
