"Caring for Caregivers"

"Roger was a caregiver to his parent for over 10 years which led him to pursue a professional career in this field. Throughout this time, it was always realized the healing power that sharing and simply talking with others who were in similar situations provided. Roger offers his experience to others but also looks to his audience for interaction and the mutual sharing of sometimes challenging times".

"Working with Vince Lombardi and much more"

SPEAKER:                                                         SANDY SULLIVAN

Sandy Sullivan is an author, teacher, businesswoman and motivational speaker who can deliver a rousing account of her experiences while working with Vince Lombardi and the Green Bay Packers. 

You’ll laugh and you’ll cry when you hear what she has accomplished, what she’s learned, and how and why she survived some very tough years; beginning with her husband’s unexpected death, to caring for her aging parents and raising a lovely daughter alone. She encourages others to stay positive and never give up because “It ‘ain’t’ over til it’s over!”

Her book, “Green Bay Love Stories,” has been acknowledged as a significant historical account of the Packers Glory Years and the foreword is written by Packers Hall of Fame great, Paul Hornung. 

She’ll tell a wild survival story which starts with working for Vince Lombardi and the Packers in the ‘60’s and how that time influenced her life and it ends with a run for WI Secretary of State. 

You’ll find the presentation fun, interesting and inspiring. She brings her books for sale so everyone can read more of the story.  There are a few left which are signed by the Lombardi Legends and they sell for $125. (Five of which are now deceased) They are precious keepsakes for the dedicated Packers fan. 

Sandy Sullivan can be contacted at 414-427-1893 or 414-426-6993 and she’s waiting for your call.
