Badass Women at Any Age

Mar 1, 2022

Marci Bracken and Bridget Snell met in the waiting room of their kids' karate class and they found a common purpose and passion to share the bold and raw personal stories of women who triumph over trauma, joy from struggle, and self-identity through life experiences. Motivated by their goal to provide artful and emotional content for women, they created Waiting Room Media Company, a multimedia company geared at bringing women together through inclusive and reader-focused products, including magazines and online communities. Living Crue magazine is the company’s flagship publication.  Bridget has spent nearly 25 years in print and marketing. Her adventures in magazines included managing an award-winning automotive trade magazine as well as a nationally-franchised newspaper. Marci has spent 20 years in the advertising and marketing industry selling radio advertising, email marketing, web advertising, print media, and onsite event marketing. Her resume includes working for companies such as CBS Radio, Entercom, and Cumulus Media as well as legendary radio stations such as WBCN and Magic 106.7. Together, they have created, Living Crue,  a magical and empowering experience for women to share their stories.
