About me

My name is Susan and 

  • I am a recovered corporate drone who got tired of spending most of her life doing work that was, honestly, B.S.

  • I value freedom above all else. That means I’ll do anything to be in charge of my time, my life, and my career.

  • I believe staying in an unfulfilling career because it’s safe and the responsible thing to do is a living death.

  • If I can break free and follow my purpose, thus creating gutsy happiness in my life, so can you. Absolutely.

I am a Happiness Coach and Success Coach specializing in helping professional women who have burned out in their corporate job merge their creative talents and altruistic dreams to create a career (or business) that make them truly happy and fulfilled. I work with women trapped in “soul-sucking” careers that leave them unable to enjoy much else in life. They are creative (most often writers) and they want to use that gift somehow to make the world better—one client is working in animal rescue, another is focused on women’s empowerment, and yet another wants to help small business owners succeed. 

My story is that for years I thought my career was the problem. I had a high-paying corporate career that was slowly killing me. I was stressed and developed health issues related to that stress. I gained weight. I had no energy or desire to see my friends, and as a, result my friendships suffered. I had nothing to give my husband, despite cherishing that relationship. Let me share the absolute truth I learned: 

Your job isn’t the problem. Your boss isn’t the problem. Your co-workers are not the problem. The burnout and resentment you’re feeling are signs that it is time to follow your own path.

How I can help you: I have done this work. I still do it. I know I can help you because the process I guide women through works.

You CAN transform your life, no matter what stage of life you’re in. You can find a new career or start a business. You can create a life of purpose and joy AND make a good living. You deserve all of this. BUT if you do not address the deep seeded beliefs that are holding you back (and if you’re reading this page, you have them), you will stay stuck and in pain. I don’t want that for you because I know how awful it is.

I also know that doing it alone rarely gives you the results you crave. How do I know this? Because I tried to do this on my own. That didn’t work. I would change jobs, but find myself in the same situation again. I worked with a life coach, and she helped me recognize some patterns and make some changes, but we didn’t dig into my beliefs and mindset. The result was a half change, but I never addressed what was holding me back. That’s why I kept drifting without any destination. It wasn’t until I seriously studied mindset, worked with a mindset expert and did the exact things I guide you through that massive shifts happened. I will never go back to doing it on my own because I’ve seen the difference.

Today, I help women find the clarity, confidence, and courage to have a purpose-focused career.

My credentials: I have multiple coaching certificates, all designed to address different aspects of the journey I take my clients through. My core coaching certificate is in holistic health coaching (Institute of Integrative Nutrition). I realized that I loved helping women through ALL life changes they wanted, and so I augmented my health coaching with Life Coaching (Achology), Happiness Coaching (Life Coach Academy), Law of Attraction (Global Sciences Foundation) and NLP (Achology). I also have an undergrad degree in Journalism (Kansas) and a graduate degree in urban and environmental policy (Tufts). I am a corporate workforce survivor and small business owner — together these credentials are a POWERFUL combination! Every single thing I recommend to you is something that profoundly helped me and my clients.

I got my coaching credential in 2012, but I’ve been coaching women since 2002. That’s the year I launched my first successful business; a graphic design agency. We specialized in branding, and what I found was the new business owners needed guidance in navigating the fear that ALWAYS emerges during times of big change. I helped them shift their mindset, and then we would strategize for success (and they thought they’d just hired me to do their marketing). Even before I was officially a coach, I used my training as a journalist to ask the questions that helped these women think about things differently and develop the action plan to make it happen. Whether changing careers or starting a business, the mindset, visualization, and strategy will get you where you want to go.

I’ve done a lot in my life. The big successes, like finding my life purpose and the love of my life and launching this coaching business, I did with the help of a coach. The big failures, like taking a job that was the WRONG fit for me and chasing degrees that weren’t in alignment with my higher purpose, I did all by my self. I have finally learned the lesson: a coach will get you where you want to go.

Other fun facts about me: I’m a writer, a wife, a stepmom, a dog mom, a volunteer for the Fairfax County Animal Shelter, a women’s running coach and I hope a good friend. I love cooking, foraging for wild mushrooms and SCUBA. My dream is to live at the beach, and my husband and I have a plan to make it happen.

Mostly, I’m a human being doing the best I can in this world. What I want most is for women like me to be happy.

Coaching with me


Get Your Head in the Game
Together we will clear the clutter… all those beliefs and messages keeping you stuck in an unfulfilling career rather than following your dreams. The things that are the reason you start but never finish.

Visualize Your Amazing, Creative, Fulfilling Life
You have creative talents and an altruistic dream to make the world better. But what does that actually LOOK like for you? Well, that is what we are going to discover. (And once you realize what it is, BAM…there is no stopping you.)

Go Into Massive Action with a Solid Plan
You can’t wing creating a purpose-focused career (or business). You need a solid plan with realistic action steps and timelines. Guiding you through that is one of my superpowers. You WILL make this work.


I believe you have the answers inside of you and my job is to help you gain the clarity, confidence, and courage to voice them. I am a guide. I will hold you accountable, I will keep you on the path toward your dreams, I will celebrate you, and I will support you.

I have developed a system of activities that guide you through the various critical aspects of this particular personal development journey. On our private calls, we discuss what came up for you, I listen to what you need and steer you toward your desired outcomes. This is all about you, and you are unique, so I will adapt our private calls to ensure I am serving you.



Through my signature program, we will work together for six to twelve weeks (depending on your goals) and have weekly half-hour coaching sessions. You will have access to an online members site where you have a weekly video and activities to do. I will modify and/or provide additional activities as needed for your unique goals and needs.

Experience, Certifications and Training

  • Life Coaching
  • NLP Coaching

I have been a successful business owner for more than 15 years—I co-own a massage center with my husband. I was a freelance writer and owned a branding agency for ten years. I have developed an online coaching business and created courses. 

I left the corporate prison I was in at age 35. I briefly returned for one horrible year and realized I can never go back to that environment! I completely changed careers at the age of 50. I know what it takes. I have done the work to find my purpose-focused life, and I have guided many women on the same journey. 

You can be fulfilled. You can find your purpose. I can help you.
