With over 20 years of progressive experience delivering strategic communications and conflict resolution solutions for clients in the United States and overseas, Suzanne excels in bringing out the potential of others.
After working in the advertising sector as a copywriter for corporate telecom, national retailers, and financial sector clients, Suzanne realized her desire was to not only help organizations reach their target market but bridge critical divides.
