WWR Article Summary (tl;dr) A Philadelphia entrepreneur is helping female baby boomers connect with mother nature.

After nearly a quarter century as a Burlington County elementary schoolteacher, Patricia “Patt” Osborne was intent on reinventing herself.

So in 2002 she blended her fledgling career as a life coach with her lifelong love of the outdoors to launch Boomer Chick Adventures.

“I know what being outdoors does for me,” Osborne, 63, says. “I hope to help people experience a similar feeling. I don’t teach; I just facilitate. The transformation comes from Mother Nature.”

A Haddon Township grandmother of four, Osborne annually organizes more than a dozen hiking, kayaking, and other recreational activities in the Pinelands and elsewhere for small groups of women, most of whom are over 50.

During a typical year about 125 people, many of them regulars and a handful of male spouses, participate; most activities involve day trips, although the schedule (www.boomerchickadventures.com) includes an annual weekend retreat.
