Our BA50 Team

Felice Shapiro, Founder and Publisher
bad ass goalsFelice Shapiro has been an entrepreneur in publishing for her entire career.  She grew her multi-title parenting magazine group (family publishing group) and sold it to a conglomerate in London (UAP).  Betterafter50.com is her most recent start-up.  As Founder/Publisher of this on-line magazine, BA50, she has created a platform for women at mid-life and publishes work around topics relevant to mid-lifers as they enter their next phase.  Her personal journey has given her writing a focus on reinvention and figuring out next acts.  Felice  also teachers Entrepreneurship at Tufts University. She and her fabulous husband Bill split their time between Boston and New York. She loves to spend time with her BA50′s sharing conversation while running, hiking, skiing, and after yoga. She is the proud mother of 2 boys.

Felice is available to give talks on “Reinvention” and “Creating Your Start-Up/Getting Started” and “Life After 50″

Ronna Benjamin, Managing Editor
Ronna BenjaminAbout the time Ronna Benjamin turned 50, she had an epiphany.  After 28 years of practicing law, she realized she didn’t want to be a real estate attorney, and jumped into the world of writing.  She never looked back.  Ronna writes humorously about the things BA50’s are concerned about:  adult children, aging parents, illness, anxiety and insomnia, to name a few.  Ronna is thrilled to be working with the awesome women at Betterafter50.    She is a native Bostonian and loves to spend time with her wonderful husband and three adult children.  She also loves to cook, sail, ski, run and bike.

Mervett Heyfan, BA50 Marketing Intern
Mervett HeyfanTufts University 2013. Major: Psychology. Minor: Communication and Media Studies. While I may not be BA50, my mother is and living with her has certainly shed some light on the BA50 experience … once I look beyond the motherly yelling, of course. Life goals: I hope to one day work in marketing for a social entrepreneurship based in Central Africa. Oddly specific? Yes, but I think that makes my path all the more realizable.
