"Exquisite coaching."- Ellen Fulton, Master Certified Coach

"Susan is a natural coach if I ever met one.  She listens very deeply to what I say, how I say it and what I don't say.  She is also very smart and insightful.  Through her listening and insights she has helped me increase my self awareness and my ability to act with integrity, true to my best self, so I can live the way I really want to live!  I am so grateful to Susan for her compassion, caring and amazing coaching." - Paula Lowe, ICF Certified PCC Coach and former Associate VP and Director of Training, NASD/NASDAQ

She listened intently to my experience and through the use of powerful questioning, was able to open my eyes to a new way of thinking about a situation, and what I truly wanted to do. Susan partnered with me to design a path forward. She is simply a top-notch and impactful coach. I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking for transformation." - Heather S., National trade association chief of staff
