Today I am speaking with Holley Kelley, credentialed Professional Gerontologist, with a Masters’ Degree in Applied Gerontology and a BA in Journalism and Psychology. Author of the book Sunrises and Sunsets: Final Affairs Forged with Flair, Finesse, and FUNctionality, her writing career actually started quite early with poetry, songs and short stories. She often performed her songs with local bands and at local events. During her early college years at Brenau University, she wrote an advice column for the college newsletter, had her short stories published, and worked at the college radio station. Around the age of 21, she was asked to write and officiate a custom funeral service. That event led her towards new focus in her career. She held a management position in the health care field, started a business writing personal eulogies, and finally left the health care industry to open her own senior-focused insurance firm. When she returned to Brenau to get her Gerontology Masters Degree, her book was born and she now writes and speaks about aging and advance care planning for the last phase of life.
