"How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?"

Dori Gillam – Speaking, Writing, Storytelling
Dori Gillam


Speaking, writing, and storytelling are the sweetener in my life, like spending time with family and friends, hiking mountains, or building houses for Habitat for Humanity.

When I engage different generations in discovering new perspectives on aging, or facilitate groups sharing their wisdom on aging creatively, or raise awareness about the pervasive ageism in our society, I don’t call it “work!”
