Wiser With Age tells the stories of inspirational individuals, 60 and over, in the hope of empowering others to pursue their dreams. Today, people 60, and up, are still accomplishing extraordinary feats – from leading orchestras to owning restaurants – and Wiser With Age wants to make sure their stories, and words of wisdom, get told.

KristinaFounder and storyteller, Kristina Puga, has always loved listening to her elders ever since she was a young girl. By documenting the stories of older Americans, she hopes to bridge the generational gap and enable young and old to learn from, and inspire, each other.

She also interviewed influential women for her weekly “Latina Leaders” column and wrote an annual series about the “Hiring Our Heroes” job fair for veterans.
