Shauna Grow of ChicOver50
Shauna Grow (@chicover50) started her journey of being an influencer eight years ago, just on a whim. She knew nothing about social media and had never worked outside her home. She began CHIC OVER 50 and learned very quickly how much need there is for women at midlife to be able to connect with other women their age. She has the privilege of talking to them all over the world about fashion, health, fitness, and all things in between. It has been the most rewarding path for Shauna, and has helped her more than she has ever helped anyone else. It gave her a way out of a troubled marriage and on to better things, and a safer and more stable life. Shauna loves that her job is a lot of creating, as she has always loved photography and journal keeping. This has turned out to be way more than Shauna had ever dreamed of having for herself. Truly midlife is just the beginning for her!!
