Sue worked for Mike Sheehan Realty in Waverly for a number of years when she got the urge to try something different. She ended up in Norwalk, Connecticut, where she became a nanny. Again, looking for a new challenge , she started working for RTA International. The job at RTA International provided the challenge she was looking for. She was employed there for 35 years, where she enjoyed her work family and the clients that she served.
