Our first guest will be a local Sarasota resident and will be playing a flute live in the WSLR studio, Suzanne Raincrow Geyer. I was born in Miami, FL, and grew up, among other things, a Chicago Cubs fan in Suburban Chicago. I currently am training to be a Commercial Pilot, the first in my family. I direct a choir at Church, play piano, and Native American flute. I lived abroad as a Diplomat for a total of 9 years, residing in Cheltenham, England; Geneva, Switzerland; and Vienna, Austria. I was on the Leadership Council at the inception of the Satellite Cherokee Nation group in DC, (called CapCity Cherokees), and currently am on the Leadership Council of the Central FL Cherokees. I am grateful for the courage of my Ancestors and acknowledge their resilience.
