Charismatic Crew

Sue is an iconic voice in radio and along with Deirdra, their combined talents are helping “mid life moms” regain full grips on the reins of their lives and figure out how to successfully take the next steps that serve each of us best. Love their added humor and thoughtful anecdotes. Listening to them is like having lunch with the ladies (with cocktails). Love it!
