I help women over 50, like you, safely and confidently navigate the search and move to your dream location, so you can enjoy a fulfilling life in a place that you love.
If you’re considering a move, you’ve likely spent time online trying to figure out where. But with so many possibilities and so much noise, overwhelm and anxiety about making the wrong decision are keeping you stuck in place.
The good news?
With the right tools and expertise, the search for your dream location can be humming along like a well-oiled machine before you know it!
Whether you’re ready to downsize your empty nest, live closer to grandchildren or aging parents, or simply find a place that’s a better fit for you, one thing is certain:
You want to feel confident you’ll be happy in the place you choose.
The last thing you want to do is waste precious time and money on a wrong move. But until you can be surer about your decision, you feel stuck where you are.

If you’re fed up with feeling stuck and are eager to find the right place so you can MOVE already, Your Place Finder will get your search up and running pronto!
Your Place Finder custom researches and identifies your top 10 places to move using The Spark System, a system I invented by adapting the signature method I used over 30 years to find and match like-minded funding sources and nonprofits (and secure $30+ million in grants).
Your Place Finder also provides you with easy-to-use tools to guide your scouting visit and decision-making processes, so you can feel confident you’re choosing the right place to move.
Although finding grant money and finding the right place to live may appear to be worlds apart, both require the following strategies and expertise to be successful:
- Envisioning your desired future and articulating priorities, needs, interests and goals to achieve it.
- Identifying and ranking prospects by how closely they match your priorities, needs, interests and goals.
- Gathering and organizing data on your prospects, so that it’s easy to analyze and evaluate.
- Mapping out a plan to pursue your top-ranking prospects, so that you achieve optimal results.
Your Place Finder applies 30 years of prospect research and strategic planning expertise to find and match you with locations that most closely align with your priorities, needs, interests, and goals.

A rude awakening and a
Your Place Finder rose from the rubble of an utterly disastrous empty nest move.
A few years ago, I was in the same boat as you, wondering where to move, searching for hours online only to end up even more confused and discouraged than before. I even looked online for someone, or some system, to help me figure out the right place to move – but my search came up empty handed.
Unfortunately, I let impatience win out over common sense. A lifelong city girl, I got a wild hair and moved with my husband and our four-legged family from a city in Texas to a small town in Iowa – and paid dearly for it!
Why didn’t I apply my prospect research expertise to my own search for the right place to live? The truth is I had not yet connected the dots. It took 20/20 hindsight for me to realize the link between fund-raising and place-finding success.
But as soon as I made that connection, I knew I had to do something.
So, I founded Your Place Finder to help women over 50, like you, take the guesswork out of your search for the right place to live, so you can finally get moving and start enjoying your next chapter in an amazing new location.
Because, who has time – especially in at this stage in life – to let fear of moving to the wrong place keep you stuck in place?
