April 15: Mary Gottschalk Journeys “From Finance to Fiction”
Mary will follow her journey from the world of Wall Street (physically and metaphorically) to the world of creative writers … a journey that required very different kinds of communication skills at each step!
Raised and educated in the Midwest, Mary moved to New York City to build her career in finance. Over the next 15 years, she worked as an economist, a banker, and consultant for agricultural and metal commodity merchants. Along the way, she married an investment banker, also from the Midwest.
After 35 years and six career changes, Mary abandoned the corporate world to be a writer. Her first book, Sailing Down the Moonbeam, was published in 2008. Today, Mary makes her living as a freelance writer, speaker and lecturer on topics such as career planning, adjusting to aging, and the amazing things that can happen when you step outside your comfort zone.
Her first novel, A Fitting Place, comes out May 1 of this year.
