    Mr. Washed-Up Athlete – Thanks for posting your profile. Susan Cera, fellow washed up athlete, from Stratus here.

I suspect that you may be a applying some lessons learned from the basketball court in the workplace.

    If I’ve missed anything about your profile, feel free to reach out.
    Wishing you all the best on …
