As a shy girl growing up, Susanna wasn’t used to listening or following her own intuition. Susanna worked her way up the corporate ladder and helped organizations work through conflict, develop strategic plans and inspire their employees to be their best selves as an organizational development consultant, executive coach and mediator. Going through a divorce and making the decision to take a leap, leaving her secure job and starting her own business, Susanna tapped into her own power and greatness. She listened to her inner voice calling her to use this experience and skill set in a more personal and fulfilling way. Today, as a personal coach for women, Susanna’s online course, blog, podcasts, social community and book called You are a Heroin: A Retelling of The Hero's Journey, touch thousands of women ready to hear their calling and take a leap toward the life they want. Susanna's clients are all real life heroines, finding the courage to set out on an adventure. She has dedicated herself to helping women learn to trust their own inner voice. It's not “father knows best” anymore, it's every heroine knows best about herself, who she is and what she wants.
