Your Chief Ambassadors are:


Sue Reddel 

Sue started out as a simple painter. Through hard work and sheer determination she ended up a senior executive in corporate advertising at one of the world's largest media companies. Acquiring a thirst for travel and world culture through her many "two week vacations," Sue made the leap out of corporate America to start PoshPorts, share her knowledge and experiences, and further her world exploration. Sue loves to study art, music and architecture on every journey, share her discoveries with others and learn a little bit more every single day. Her passion for sharing the wonders of her experiences, however, often causes her to talk way too fast, so she makes every attempt to remind herself to use hand gestures to show her enthusiasm, rather than speed of speech.

Sue is a teacher and a mentor. Nothing gives her more pleasure than seeing her students and friends succeed. She consumes media voraciously and is always using and sharing the latest social media trend. Although many folks know that Sue is an animal lover, what they may not know is that Sue is also an avid bird-watcher. One of her favorite destinations was the Jurong Bird Park in Singapore, where her artistic skills as a photographer also took flight. Sue enjoys capturing the visual delights of her experiences, and many of the photos on PoshPorts are her own.

Sue loves to eat, and while she has a fairly simple palate she thoroughly enjoys sampling world cuisines in all their many varieties. She is a self-taught expert in sparkling wines of the world and a budding sommelier. Sue's approach to travel and recommendations is the perfect blend of excitement and reliablity. She provides great observations to those who desire adventure matched by dependable quality. She provides the backbone for the "Seal of Approval" on the insights provided by PoshPorts. Sue is a great connector of people and ideas, and strives to make all situations a win-win. She is extremely thankful for all the bounty in her life and is therefore always looking for ways to give back. She has been a strong supporter of children's philanthropic organizations including the Off The Street Club. Her commitment led to PoshPorts' first Doing Good and Giving Back initiative, participation in Share Our Strength's Taste of the Nation to end childhood hunger. Be sure to check out Sue's blog.

Diana Laskaris 

Diana would like to be called a Rennaissance Woman, but more often is called someone with Life A.D.D. She has had careers as a writer, stage manager, film producer, business executive, game developer, attorney and much, much more. But a few passions have stayed with Diana since the beginning - her love of fine beverages and cuisine, nature, travel and cultural exploration. Her earliest travel experiences began with a trip to Mexico when she was single digits old, followed by a tour of Europe when she was 10. At 17 she spent 2 months overseas with a group of college graduates, and thus began her appreciation for beer, wine and cocktails. She's continued to follow her wanderlust and culinary curiosity ever since.

An avid home chef and mixologist (she actually is a graduate of the American Bartenders School), Diana enjoys creating and serving new recipes to friends, family and passersby who look hungry. She is creator of the "Extended Family Cookbook" and its recently expanded version called the "Hyper-Extended Family Cookbook." Always on the lookout for new ideas, Diana has a habit of collecting books, magazines and all form of printed matter that led her one day to the realization that her personal library was larger than the public library of Pacifica, CA, where she lived when she had this revelation. Her library now rivals that of her current home city of Chicago because for the first time in 15 years, all volumes are located in the same state.

Diana's passion for doing good and giving back has fueled her involvement with various organizations including the American Cancer Society, World Wildlife Fund, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Audubon Society, American Diabetes Association, Wildlife Waystation and others. She is founder of the Entertainment Innovators Association and the Chicago Writers Association, and looks forward to helping develop the PoshPorts Foundation for Doing Good and Giving Back.
