Our Team

Laura Galbato

Laura is the creator of North of 52, serving as writer, photographer and managing editor. After a successful career as a compensation consultant for LCG Group and Towers Perrin, she returned to earlier passions of writing, photography, video, and the creative aspects of technology.

Laura loves hiking, bicycling, mosaic art, and a good glass of Prosecco. Laura and her husband Tony have been married for 31 years and divide their time between the Pacific Northwest and Southwest Florida. They have two children in their 20s.

Terry Sykes-Bradshaw

Terry is a writer for North of 52 and an accomplished author and journalist. Terry is a former humor columnist and the author of Finding Maggie, Sibling Revelry, and The Awful Truth About Dead Men.

Terry loves writing, popcorn, Jazzercise and a good margarita, but not necessarily in that order. She and her husband Bill divide their time between Ohio and Florida. She is hard at work on a fourth novel when she isn’t at the beach collecting… ideas. Terry has two adult children and one granddaughter.


Bella is a sounding board, UPS alert system, and office companion. She has worked with Laura in her home office for over 14 years.

Bella loves dehydrated chicken, stuffed animals, a good nap, and people. She is single with no children.

Guest Writers

North of 52 may periodically feature guest writers who have a track record of writing great content. Our focus is on rewirement and our style is upbeat and research-based, with a bit of a comic undertone. Topics focus on challenging our minds, keeping our bodies strong and healthy, and thriving in our relationships. Our target audience is enthusiastic folks over 50 who are living with zest.

If you believe you have something unique to contribute, please send an email to info@northof52.com and we’ll send you our guest writer guidelines. All content must be original and unique.
