She empowers her clients to step into and fully utilize their humanness in their work.

But it is not the spectacular array of discerning credentials that defines Susan’s magic.
For Susan’s magic draws upon her own lifelong experiences, challenges, and transitions, as well as her unequivocal enthusiasm and deep care for her clients. It is her ability to meet clients where they are at in their journey, and provide a ‘safe place’ that allows them to be vulnerable, reflective, and honest with themselves about who they are, where they are struggling, and what they need to feel truly fulfilled and satisfied at this evolution in their lives and career.
She sees the individual uniqueness of her clients in transition and helps them embrace their next steps – to see the possibilities and take an active role in the direction of their lives and realize that being who they are actually lets them achieve what they want to be.
Bringing to the table her unique formula of good judgment, intelligence, adventure, and curiosity, with unbridled optimism, Susan quickly wins her clients over, and guides them in a process that is lively and fun.
In her spare time, you can find Susan tending to her thousands of bees as a beekeeper, participating in book clubs, traveling the world, and zipping around on her red Vespa to yoga class.
“Authenticity is a collection of choices that we have to make every day. It’s about the choice to show up and be real. The choice to be honest. The choice to let our true selves be seen.”– Brene Brown
