I’m Kris van der Pas-Norenius, BSc, MSM, a certified retirement workshop facilitator, speaker, blogger and a former engineer, Businesswoman of the Year, and strategic planner.  After selling my business, I experienced first-hand, the change that confronts you when your identity, daily structure, social circles and sense of utility are seemingly lost the day you retire.

I learned the hard way and then the right way. I studied and became certified with North America’s leading experts on retirement, Retirement Options, to help others transition smoothly to a satisfying and enriching retirement – their next 3rd phase of life.

My goal is to inform and inspire fellow next3rders, and re-define retirement via my blog, workshops, retirement circles, and speaking.  I offer research-based insights, provide thorough personal assessment tools, and share real life stories of next3rders who have found their own retirement path.  I apply my decades of business planning experience, group facilitation expertise, and Toastmaster’s skills to help you create your unique Next3rd.
