Posted by Susan Kingsley, Monday, February 3rd, 2014 @ 10:22pm

  • I have such a passion for the work I do especially when one of my clients tells me that she’s gotten her life back after going through a divorce, selling her home and making a whopping $20,000 after all was said and done.  Yay!  She has a new sense of freedom, peace of mind and re-entered the dating scene with confidence and anticipation.

Vivian Godfrey's Happy News

Posted by Susan Kingsley, Thursday, November 21st, 2013 @ 5:14pm

  • I am happy to tell my WEC friends that I have recently resigned my position as CEO of the Milk Processor Education Program (MilkPEP) based in Washington DC. I have been in that job for almost 5 years and it has been tremendously interesting and fun leading the Got Milk? campaign and the national Milk Mustache advertising program. However the downside to this job has been my weekly commute from Florida to DC and spending so much time apart from my husband and family. I will once again be working with my husband at Bluewater Books & Charts in Ft Lauderdale and also spending time managing my family business in London. I look forward to seeing everyone at our Holiday Lunch on December 13th.
