WHO IS CONNIE? 

From Instruction to Innovation... from college professor to entrepreneur.

I haven't always been an entrepreneur. Far from it! For decades, I worked as a professor at the University of Maryland and Johns Hopkins University.

When I retired, I thought that was it—that I would leave my work behind and sit tight. But I couldn’t have been more wrong. I invented the Tip ‘n Split®—a handheld device that solved a great challenge facing people with declining vision. Tip ‘n Split® magnifies the text on menus and bills, includes a light source, and completes calculations in one device!

Today, I'm in my second act… as an inventor, a “grandmapreneur,” an author, and a caregiver to two young grandchildren…living
proof that second-act entrepreneurs can succeed, if only they focus on what matters most to them.

My new project during the pandemic is "Write Your Selfie".

As a speaker, I inspire other Baby Boomers to follow their dreams.
