Your Life Calling with Jane Pauley

A Natural Work in Progress Live Chat Transcript

If you missed the online chat with Jane and her guests, Catherine Zimmerman and Betsy Werley, you can catch the conversation here.

Jane Pauley: Hello everyone! Thanks for joining us. I hope you enjoyed our TODAY Show segment this morning featuring Catherine Zimmerman, an award-winning camera-woman who is becoming a burgeoning expert on designing sustainable landscapes and making meadows.

Zimmerman’s story is a testament to her remarkably independent spirit. She was a pioneer for women in the television industry, and she’s recently put herself through school and self-published a book – all while fulfilling her role as a single mother of three. Today we’re going to discuss the unique challenges that women face on the road to reinvention and the support we can offer one another along the way.

Catherine joins us in the chat this afternoon, along with Betsy Werley, executive director of the Transition Network. TTN is for women age 50+ who help each other navigate every step of the reinvention process with local chapters and resources throughout the country.

Hello, Catherine and Betsy! Welcome -- great to have you with us. … Back to Article
