Susan’s coaching was life changing. Susan and I started with understanding my preferences, and then how my values are the cornerstone of my career decisions. Making value-based career decisions was pivotal and has set me up for future success.

— Staff Biochemist

I have improved my communication and improved my leadership abilities. I feel that I have become a stronger leader through coaching. Of highest importance, Susan’s personality and style of engagement made it easy for me to connect with her and trust her guidance.

— Senior Director, Product Development

Susan is an insightful and thought-provoking coach. There were moments where Susan asked me a tough question that I may have avoided answering. But I felt comfortable knowing that she was allowing me to be fully vulnerable, get to the root of the solutions, and steps to move forward to success.

— Engineer, Discovery Project Team Leader


Susan immediately helped me to focus on what I want and the source of my dissatisfactions. She helped me confront the question what is superfluous in my life and what is genuinely rewarding. She got me to think seriously about the need to say No to new commitments. And she encouraged me to advocate for myself.

— Assistant Professor, Computational Science

My work with Susan has really helped me to think more broadly about my professional responsibilities and how to set boundaries. Susan helped me develop habits and strategies so that I don’t only fix the most urgent problem at hand but also ensure that I don’t get myself into those situations again. I’ve repeatedly been surprised by how the approaches and tools Susan has taught me can provide new and valuable insights into seemingly unrelated situations. 

— Tenured Professor, Mathematics

Workshop Planners

As a speaker, Susan leverages her life experience in her material to coach and council others. Participants value the sincerity of her approach and the “real-ness” of her content. Attendee feedback was incredibly positive.

— Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association

I was impressed with the level of audience engagement Susan was able to achieve — it really speaks to her ability to draw people out and keep the energy of the presentation at a high level. It was great to have a presenter who took the extra time to understand her audience and then use that information to tailor the program to our members.

— Association of Women in Science

As I watched the project managers in the room it was a study in focused attention. Your presentation manner and subject matter were spot on, and it had to be one of the most provocative on leadership-oriented presentations we have had in months. 

— Project Management Institute

Susan conducted two highly interactive and engaging workshops designed for the needs of women in science.  As one faculty member indicated “When you see many busy women taking time out of their day, obviously glad to be there and feeling engaged, you know something is working.”
