    Hi everybody! I live in Senoia, Georgia, where the AMC hit series “The Walking Dead” is filmed. I don’t write about zombies though. I prefer to write on topics that help the living live healthy, happy lives like my mom — she’s 96. I’m about an hour south of Atlanta, and travel to Miami every couple of months. Anyone else in Atlanta or South Florida?
    Here’s an invite to check out my website: https://www.anascontentstudio.com/ and another invite to connect on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/anagasconivey/.
    Cheers to all!

    Hi Ana:

    Welcome to AHCJ! Glad to hear you spend time in Miami. We have a small chapter here in Southeast Florida. Although we don’t have events very often, hopefully we can meet you at one of them. I can put you on my email list if you send me your email. You can contact me via my website, MerylDavidsLandau.com.

    Let me know too if you’ll be at the conference. Maybe we can meet there.

    Enjoy AHCJ! It’s a great organization.

    Meryl Davids Landau
