What career path is primarily 9-5, makes $60,000+ a year, and involves a high amount of contact with other people?

I used to think I was one of those people who wanted to make work my life, study something I was passionate in. Now I realize I'd like to be able to live comfortably, devote most of my time to my family/friends/hobbies, and not be so stressed out from my job that my days off are tainted. I picked $60,000 because I read somewhere that that's the salary that makes most people happy - the rest is just extra.
What should I pursue? Most of the jobs in this area seem lonely such as IT, accounting, and engineering. The healthcare field seems to fit what I want best, but I'm worried I'll spend most of my life working nights.
What am I missing?
