Hilton Head Island Speaking Engagement

Speaking at the Prime Of Life Chamber of Commerce event on Hilton Head Island recently was an incredible experience.




The grand ballroom at the Marriott Hotel and Resort was the location for this event.




I wore one of my favorite looks by IC Collection provided by ShopMyFairLady.com. If you find that they have sold out of this very popular set, please email or call them from the information listed on their website. They will back-order the items for you.

The shoes are by Sam Edelman. The necklace is from S.M. Bradford Co., located at the Harbour Town Yacht Club on Hilton Head Island.




The camera was not cooperating very well. Sadly, this was the only photo that turned out from my talk.

I spoke about the benefits of eating a plant-based diet and how cultivating a positive attitude has impacted my health in the past five years.




I am already looking forward to my next visit to Hilton Head! With me above is Michelle Taylor, who owns a new shop on the island. Birdie James is opening this weekend at the Shelter Cove Towne Centre. One of my other favorite shops in the same Centre is the Copper Penny. I am shown below on another day with the owner Mary Margaret McGaughey.


Shelter Cove Towne Centre is a fabulous new Centre that offers many great places to shop, eat and browse. 

We really enjoyed being pampered for a day at the fabulous Faces Day Spa.


In the evening, we had a fantastic dinner with some of the hardworking members of the Chamber of Commerce at the Red Fish. It was the perfect ending to our first full day on the Island.

I was showered with genuine southern hospitality and gifts during my stay.


A Fifty, not Frumpy follower, Debbie Carr came all the way from Delaware to spend some time with me!




I enjoyed meeting many leaders in the community who attended the event and stayed to hear me speak.











The lovely woman with me below is a retired Physician. We were discussing how little training about nutrition is provided in Medical School. 











The warm and welcoming spirit of each person I had the pleasure of meeting this week, made this a delightful experience, I will never forget.

Thank you for joining us on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!
