The Road with Cove Queen Janine Sullivan
with Janine Sullivan
Every now and then while walking on the road of life we pause and wonder what is next. Sometimes the answer comes in round about ways while questions linger in the air as if waiting for some sort of realization to arrive before a resolution follows. For more than thirty years I have worked in the field of health care. Along the way I have spoken to people from all walks of life. I learned that we all have more in common than we may think. I believe many of us ask big questions of life and eagerly await practical answers.
The Road is an out of the box program that finds common ground and discovers the answers to life’s most interesting questions. Come on The Road with me, Cove Queen Janine Sullivan and together we will see what life has to offer.
