We are on earth to figure out what our love story is Click To Tweet

Elizabeth Phinney was the founder and President of a multi-million dollar destination management company for meetings and incentives in Boston, MA. At the age of 21, her son was riding his bike one night to pick up some beer from the liquor store, ½ mile from his house, when he was hit from behind and died instantly.

Now, almost nine years later, Elizabeth has grown into a dynamic speaker, trainer and consultant for Fitness After Forty Five and her son is her guide and greatest support as she writes her first book. Elizabeth believes that her destiny and strength to pursue it are directly connected to the strength she gained from surviving the death of her son.
