About our guest:

Working with young minds, hearts, and voices is Susan’s passion and life’s work.  Spending more than 40 years on-air, in production, and as a college professor, Susan decided to share her wisdom and created VOSOT – coaching for broadcasters.  Susan guides young broadcasters to find their voice – resulting in personal fulfillment and lifting their careers to new heights.

Susan considers it an honor to share what she has learned as a voice actor, traffic reporter, live host, radio personality, and news director. Susan is grateful for the opportunity to help others achieve similar professional success and career satisfaction.

Susan, thanks for sharing your many gifts and for helping countless individuals share theirs as well.   Welcome to the show!

TOTD – “The credit belongs to the person who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends themself in a worthy cause; who at best, if they win, know the thrill of high achievement, and, if they fail, at least fails daring greatly, so that their place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”                                                                                                                         Theodore Roosevelt
