ResetReset: 40 is the New Happy marks our first anniversary of bringing you stories of mid-life reinventions. We’ve also gone video for our conversation with Nashua’s Carolyn Choate.

After a career in local television as longtime host and producer with WYCN tv13 in Nashua, Carolyn is diversifying her career portfolio as a freelance writer at various publications, including The Barking Tomato on Manchester Ink Link, and teaching memoir and food writing at the Nackey S. Loeb School of Communications and Nashua Community College.Screenshot 2016-06-11 at 8.17.44 AM

But it is her remarkable recovery from stage 3 breast cancer that has motivated her to pay it forward in the cancer activist movement in an epic way, with a literary twist.

Watch this special edition of Reset: 40 is the New Happy, and be inspired as Choate talks about her quest to innovate and reinvigorate her life.
