50 over 50 2022 Edition

Suzie Gilbert

Meet the participants of the 50 over 50 Portrait Experience 2022 Edition. 

In their own words……

Grit. Hope. Humor.

    1. Greater determination to achieve my goals.

    3. Brace yourself!

    4. I hope they would see someone strong, resilient, and fun. I’d want them to know that I loved my kids, family, and friends, and fought for wildlife and the natural world.

    5. I grew up in Oyster Bay, New York. My parents are deceased. I have one brother and aunts, uncles and cousins scattered around New England. I traveled a lot before I was 30 but then settled in New York’s Hudson Valley, where I raised my two children. They are now 27 and 29 and I’m so proud of them. My son Mac is a licensed arborist and owns his own tree company in Newburgh, New York, and my daughter is a photographer, writes short stories, and bartends in the East Village of New York City.

    6. Raising my kids as a single mother.

    7. My kids! I am most proud of them. I am also proud of my books and the work I have done with wild birds.

    8. Time with my family and friends, hiking in the woods, riding horses, and swimming with dolphins.

    9. I lived through the ’80s in New York City
