S2 E17: Transforming Personal Loss into an Encore Career
Bill Cohen (Questrom’74) founded Cohen Caregiving Consultants, LLC, to provide advice and counsel to families who are grappling with a diagnosis of dementia or Alzheimer’s. His work with caregivers follows a fascinating career that included time in hospitality, financial services, and state government. He joined us on the podcast to talk about the personal loss that inspired his "second act" or "encore career" and to provide a roadmap for other alumni who are looking to make a career change but aren’t quite sure how to get started.
