What’s Next: Navigating Life’s Transitions in Southeast Alaska

Welcome to “What’s Next? Navigating Life’s Transitions in Southeast Alaska” a podcast to help you plan for current and future life transitions.

An attorney in Southeast Alaska, Liz Smith focuses her law practice on estate planning, but this podcast brings much more than topics about who gets what and when! Liz hosts pleasant and practical conversations with industry leaders and practitioners in her community.

We’ll investigate building and leaving your legacy, supporting aging loved ones and parents and the resources to assist you, and we’ll dig into topics around birth (and special considerations for new parents), aging, and death, that will affect each of us.

Listen wherever you get your podcasts (you can also find the player at the bottom of the screen on our website). Please subscribe so that more people find us, and we would love your feedback and ideas for future guests!
