Susan Wright

Susan is a green nut… but it’s cute on her! She’s passionate about protecting mother nature, loving animals, and recycling. No, really. If she sees someone throw their soda can or water bottle in the trash, she’ll assure they never let that happen again. “Why add to land fills when it’s just as easy to put that can back to work?” says Susan. Susan has lived in the Sacramento area for nearly twenty years, and enjoys gardening and photography.

Listen to Susan weekday afternoons from 3:00 ’til 6:00.
