Nina Lesiga was juggling a corporate job, a small business and leading a youth organization when she faced a new normal. It was the role of Caregiver for her mother, followed by her father and at times both. Balancing her life meant making hard decision, a village of support and facing guilt about what she couldn’t do.
Nina will share her Art of DayCation which focuses on how to take exceptional days away without an overnight stay. Don’t have a full day? She will share ideas for “mini DayCations” that rejuvenate and refresh.
Stratford resident Nina Lesiga retired after 30 years in the corporate world and decided to create a “dream job” for her second career. Building on her love of solo adventuring, she created a website and blog, gottatravelsolo.com, created a group for solo travelers on meetup.com and began offering seminars for those interested in hitting the road on their own. Nina co-produces storytelling events in Westport and Stratford and has appeared on“Ageless”, “Art Now & Here” and “CT Style” TV shows.
