Jean Brooks started her career in financial services in 1983.  Her skills expanded to include business development, financial compliance, insurance, lending, and management.  In 2011, she left that world and was able to devote her time to developing an idea she had about helping people transition into retirement.  Thus, Retire to Life! was born. Retire to Life! is a seminar that helps individuals answer the question:  What are you going to do with the next 20 to 30 years of your life that will make your retirement meaningful, exciting, relaxing and fulfilling? In addition to this workshop, Jean’s other passion is performing.  She is involved in films, commercials, theatre, and cabaret.  These talents have served her well in her Retire to Life! presentations. Jean graduated with honors from Temple University with a B.B.A. in Business Management.  She also trained at the Graduate School of Bank Management at the University of Virginia.  She has been involved with many not-for-profit organizations including The Mann Center for the Performing Arts, Women’s Way, Montgomery County Big Brothers Big Sisters, and a variety of professional associations.
