					 Deanne Demarco’s Show Features Rags to Riches Entrepreneur and
                    First Female Firefighter
 Host Deanne DeMarco interviews special guests entrepreneur and author, Vonda White, and
   ground-breaking female firefighter, Karen Moulder, on Thursday’s episode of “Today’s
         Inspiring Women.” Noon Pacific on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Network.

Hillside, IL, May 13, 2013 - Two extraordinary guests are lined up for the next episode of Deanne
DeMarco’s fast-paced radio show “Today’s Inspiring Women.”

First up will be award-winning business entrepreneur and author, Vonda White, who will share her
remarkable life story from her days as a food stamp child. The second guest is an equally as
motivating role model for women—mother of five, Karen Moulder, who was the first female
firefighter in Brownsville, Texas.

Both women are slated to appear next Thursday, May 16, during Deanne DeMarco’s weekly
hour-long program on the VoiceAmerica Empowerment Radio network.

Vonda White, founder and CEO of Collegiate Risk Management, a company providing health and
accident insurance to thousands of students nationwide, has received numerous awards for her
business achievements. She is author of “Success Against The Odds” and has hosted her own
radio show called “Let’s Talk Success.”

Vonda’s life today is a far cry from her childhood, raised by a divorced mom who had to accept
welfare and food stamps. Young Vonda’s contribution to the family finances was collecting and
redeeming empty soda cans. As a teenager—at her third attempt—she won the Idaho state
beauty pageant. The triumph came with college tuition and the beginning of a new life which led
her into a record-setting insurance sales career and the launch of her own business while six
months pregnant.

Deanne DeMarco, who has twenty successful years as a career coach and entrepreneur, said,
“From her childhood Vonda learned first-hand the power of persistence, self-image and goal-
setting. I will be asking her for her inspiring insights so she can help all of my listeners.”

Karen Moulder entered a man’s world when few women did so. A lifetime of breaking personal and
professional barriers was epitomized by her getting hired in 1983 as the first female member of
the Brownsville, Texas Fire Department. She says that her tomboyish nature and single mother
status led her to this fascinating and dangerous career which lasted 10 years.

A serious car accident brought Karen’s life as a firefighter to an end but launched her in a new
direction. She went back to college and majored in business. After college she managed a
physician’s office and obtained her certification in medical billing. Subsequently, she moved to
Massachusetts and started her own medical billing company. Karen wrote the book “Burning
Barriers” to share her life story and encourage other women to pursue their dreams.

DeMarco said, “Karen spent years protecting lives and property and educating the public on fire
safety. She is a true trail-blazer and has an inspiring story.”

Deanne DeMarco herself has used her innovative strategies—drawn from successful experiences
as a scientist, college instructor, management trainer, Fortune 500 manager, author and
entrepreneur—to help business executives and individuals break through personal and career
roadblocks. Each week she interviews extraordinary and inspiring women who may not yet be
household names but are business and entrepreneurial rising stars.

“Today’s Inspiring Women” airs Thursdays at noon Pacific on the VoiceAmerica Empowerment
Radio. www.voiceamerica.com/show/2182/todays-inspiring-women
