Illinois | Now I Ripple It Forward and Help Others

Illinois_Karen

Way back as a teen, I loved the sport of barefoot water skiing. One day, I took a hard fall and became deaf.

At the age of 44, I saw Judy “The Old Lady” Myers on the TODAY Show. 66 years old and she learned the sport at age 53! I got in touch with Judy and she invited me to Florida to get back on the water again. We became best friends and she even encouraged me to enter my first tournament at 45.

Because of Judy, I now ripple it forward and help others to unwrap their passion at any age.  Judy is now 73 (still barefooting!) and she’s taught me that the best years of life are always ahead!
