Sharon O’Day has enjoyed a long career in international finance, market research, and communication, where she put her MBA in Finance from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School to good use. In 2006, to ‘give back’ to her community, she began pro bono coaching of women in their 50s who had not started preparing for retirement. Sharon is a Baby Boomer who was facing her own Social Security and Medicare decisions. She consciously set out to become an expert in both fields and then share that knowledge. For the past five years, Sharon has been a sought-after content writer for many projects to educate her peers by making complicated healthcare topics easy to understand.
