Welcome to The Joy Collective

A community for navigating midlife transitions

Hi there!

I'm Kerry Ann Rockquemore. 

I spent my career as a university professor, writer, and entrepreneur

Then in 2017, I retired, quit social media, and experienced a mid-life awakening. Now I spend my time doing what I love most: 1) mentoring leaders, 2) investing in women led start-ups, healing justice, and grassroots organizing and 3) enjoying every day of my life.

My passion project in retirement is helping high-achievers navigate the slow and seismic midlife shift. This process starts with my Annual Clarity Retreat every December and continues throughout the year in this online community we call the Joy Collective

We are a group of mid-life professionals who are committed to supporting one another in:

  • pausing to reflect on our lives every December
  • experimenting with new habits, mindsets, and ways of being throughout the year
  • initiating slow and sustainable changes that realign how we spend our time
  • moving gracefully through various mid-life transitions, 
  • working collaboratively in small accountability groups, 
  • having serious conversations about the how we want to be in the world, and 
  • slowly but surely, mastering the difficult art of enjoying life. 

If this resonates with you, request to join the Joy Collective.
