Hello, I'm susan

My passion is to help people create a life they love

Working for yourself and crafting a life you love can be incredibly rewarding. Also confusing, lonely, and a little (lot) terrifying. Having a guide or mentor can help you get there faster than going it alone.


I am a mentor for career professionals and Midrepreneurs™, tapping into my 22+ year track record as a business strategist, corporate executive, & transformation consultant. I act as a guide who’s a bit farther down the path, helping my clients zoom out to see the big picture, map out where they want to go, and provide a heads up about obstacles along the way that can derail forward progess.

Using new ways of thinking combined with lessons from the 'school of hard knocks', I discovered how to stop a slump in it's tracks. By combining the best of these tools, along with some strategies of my own, I developed COMPASS™, a powerful framework for change. When applied within self-guided program format, it helps people get UNSTUCK.


Whether you prefer self-guided courses to fast track your momentum, a hybrid learning format to take a deeper dive into what makes you tick, or are seeking a 1:1 interactive process of accountability and action, the COMPASS™ framework will shorten your learning curve and help you make significant headway to making the future you envision for yourself a reality.

Hello, I'm susan

My passion is to help people create a life they love

Helping people be successful and fulfilled is what "makes my tail wag". I've been providing impactful consulting and mentoring to incredibly smart and creative Midtrepreneurs™ for over 10 years, helping them to develop a customized success path that kickstarts “that ONE BIG IDEA” into a fresh, exhilarating encore career or business opportunity.

"Your career, like your life, is made up of peaks and valleys, successes and failures. You can’t have one without the other, and you can’t grow without stumbling along the way."

Seriously though. I get it. I struggled with the same challenges you face every day. I am very familiar with the pressure of job deadlines, family obligations and feelings of inadequacy. And I know there is a better way.

I love to work with big dreamers, change makers, midlifers (yah Gen-X that’s you too), and folks that are continually challenging others (and themselves) to think differently.
