We all know someone truly inspiring. We fell in love with 75-year-old Valerie Ramsey's remarkable story the second we met her. A master at reinvention, this Wilhelmina model, author of books on women and aging, and sought-after motivational speaker has been rewriting the rules on aging for 22 years.
At age 53, after raising six children as a stay-at-home mom in Connecticut, Valerie and her husband moved clear across the country to California's Monterey Peninsula, where she started a mid-life career in an entry-level position with Pebble Beach Resorts. It wasn't long before she landed her dream job there as Media and Public Relations Manager, a position she held for 15 years. It wasn't always easy for Valerie. No sooner had she achieved her dream job than she was simultaneously diagnosed with both cancer and heart disease. Faced with the choice to give up and go home, or to persevere and overcome this setback, she chose the latter, dealt with her adversities, and resumed her position at Pebble Beach. At 63, Valerie was "discovered" by a Hollywood producer and became a Ford model, a totally unexpected second career opportunity she managed on the side. Valerie has said a resounding "Yes!" to new ideas, new adventures and new experiences. She thrives on discovering What's Next and on inspiring others to do the same. For this reason, Orchard Brands is pleased to team up with Valerie to launch "Live Beautiful at Every Age." We hope she inspires you as much as she has inspired us. Who inspires you? Tell us here
