Meet Our Founder

OC Active Seniors, LLC (OCAS) was founded by Judy Papio Mastracchio, a native New Yorker and Southern California transplant. She saw a need for information and resources for local Baby Boomers and Seniors who are still living life to the fullest and are classified as “Seniors” or “Senior Citizens” by age only.

With her background in award-winning creative writing, public relations and marketing, she is a natural for providing fresh content to the website on a daily basis.

OCAS’ purpose is to help those 55 and over (who aren’t anywhere near ready for Meals-On-Wheels and Bingo!) continue to learn and  thrive.

As Judy says, “Active ‘seniors’ are ‘too busy to grow old gracefully!’”

Senior services, local events,  advice on mid-life career changes, caring for aging parents, senior dating and suggestions for financial planning  are just some of the topics covered on www.OCActiveSeniors.com. The site also offers a wealth of information on exercise, dining out, sports, recreational events and adult education.

The eNewsletter Golden Opportunity, distributed monthly, brings exclusive shopping, travel and dining opportunities as well as contests, drawings and invitations to meet-ups for these “still ready for prime time players” to mix and mingle!

Feel free to offer any suggestions you may have to better the site by emailing Judy at  judy@ocactiveseniors.com
