About me and Retirement


Are you ready to start living your dream?

Welcome to Your Retirement Path. My name is Wendy Lacroix, I am a Certified Retirement Coach. Come walk with me down the path to retirement. The purpose of this website is to inform you of some of the options of retirement. I can help you prepare for your retirement by working with you to create both a vision and a plan for what you want to do in your retirement.

Retirement can be either an exciting time or a time of depression and emotional upheaval. Think of retirement as a transition into something new, and a time for planning for the next years. Retirement cannot be taken lightly. People are living well past the traditional retirement age, in order to have a fulfilling, happy, and healthy retirement, you need to prepare. Your Retirement Path is one of only a few organizations assisting with this  type of coaching, which is not financial.

By taking one of our assessments, webinars, or even reading some of my blogs, you will start to feel more prepared to step into your new reality.

I started my retirement coaching business after years of working for others as an Employment Counselor and Job Coach.  I enjoy working with people and would like to help you discover new pathways to your personal retirement coaching and counselling.

I have lived in Nelson, since 1987 with my two wonderful girls, Angela and Melanie and my husband Bruce. Being an outdoor enthusiast, I enjoy life to the fullest. That means getting outdoors to cycle, hike, ski and garden whenever I can. My husband and I love to travel, and have visited, Cuba, Mexico, Guatemala, Japan, China and many more countries.

I regularly write articles on retirement. Retirement articles in Park Bench newsletter, Nelson Star, and have created a video on retirement with Nelson Senior’s Society. You can watch the video here.
