Sue Gannon, Speaker

Sue Gannon lives in Sussex County, N .J   She attended The New York School of Interior Design, and has also worked in the field of web design.  She has built a successful business as a top level distributor for an International Nutrition company, where she’s been able to help people improve their health and build their own home-based businesses.  She had worked at her local soup kitchen for more than 25 years, and has recently began working as a court volunteer.  She is also involved with raising support for students to be able to attend school in one of the largest slums in Africa.  Although Sue has been involved in the health and wellness field for many years, she is still not a big fan of exercise, but she truly believes that “There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.”
