Join Amy Sweezey as she talks about the steps of reinventing herself after walking away from a successful career and how you can do the same

As an award-winning broadcast meteorologist, Amy Sweezey spent nearly 30 years in full-time broadcast news before leaving in 2020. She could have comfortably pushed toward retirement, but instead, chose to reinvent herself on the cusp of turning 50.

Much to the dismay of her colleagues and viewers, Amy walked away from the only career she’d ever known. In her pursuit of “something more,” she discovered the best thing about reinvention was that it didn’t have an expiration date.

In this insightful and candid program, Amy shares the steps she took to reinvent herself, describes what she gained by leaving her job in her prime, and explains how you, too, can reinvent yourself at any age.

This program is presented by Amy Sweezey and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.

She now focuses on public speaking and providing media services for various companies worldwide.

As Founder and CEO of Social Weather, LLC, her portfolio includes weather consulting for Carnival Cruise Lines, the multi-media platforms of Growing Bolder, and forecasting for nationwide local affiliates of ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, and Spectrum News.
