Episode 50: What Baby Boomer Women Need To Know About Caregiving, with Sally Hurme



Sally Hurme is an estate planning elder law attorney and an author of six books. She worked on Capitol Hill for six years, where she realized that it was apparent a woman needed an advanced degree. Sally went to law school in the ‘70s when there were very few women students or professors. She started a practice in Alexandria, Virginia, when there were very few women attorneys. When she decided to start a family, she withdrew from the partnership. She cobbled together part-time positions for a couple of years, so not to have a gap in her resume. Networking brought in opportunities but she never really applied for a position. One position led to another and finally to 23 years at AARP, 8 years teaching elder law as an adjunct professor, and six books.
