my story

Patricia Heaton is an Emmy-winning actress whose career has spanned television, theater, feature films and publishing. She most recently starred in the CBS comedy, “Carol’s Second Act,” starring as Carol, a mom who after raising her two children and retiring from teaching, embarks on a unique second act: pursuing her dream of becoming a doctor.

Heaton’s next project is a new book for Simon & Schuster, Your Second Act. When Heaton’s children left the nest, she discovered she had the time to pursue passions that were previously placed on hold, both personally and professionally. She now finds her greatest fulfillment in using her influence as a Celebrity Ambassador for World Vision, a non-governmental charitable organization that provides humanitarian aid throughout the world. Through her own experience, Heaton became curious about other people’s stories of second-act transitions. In the book, she shares wisdom from her own personal journey as well as insight from stories of numerous people across the country. The book is filled with light-hearted anecdotes and pragmatic steps to help readers discover their own path.

'Exciting and scary and overwhelming are all feelings common to anyone embarking on a new adventure. Not only are those feelings common, but they’re important, because they signal that we’ve stepped outside of our comfort zones'
