Ruth Anderssen retired a couple of years ago (at the age of 70) from a long career in education. She walked those halls as a teacher, eventually as a principal, and near the end as a lecturer at university. You can just imagine all the people that she dealt with on a daily basis; students, parents, colleagues, staff and the public. The thought of a quiet retired life could have been scary. In this interview we have the privilege of sharing Ruth's process as she came to terms with being Ruth instead of all those roles she used to be respected for.
Join Ruth talking about her retirement years as she initiates and leads many projects, accompanies her husband in his interests, travels abroad, and is an active grandmother.
Gayle is innately curious about people; how they see the world, how they position themselves in the world and why they do what they do. She loves interviewing people for these same reasons.
