In a land far far away, Kentucky, Suzanne grew up with a dream to be the first woman in the NBA, the female Michael Jordan. Her first love was sports and although she never played on a professional basketball court, she did play collegiate volleyball at Bentley College. Needless to say her passion for fitness, wellness and competitive spirit have been driving forces in her life. Check out her health and wellness blog, What’s In Your Workout.
After college she moved to Los Angeles where she embarked on a creative journey where she became an actress, working with actors ranging from Michael Cudlitz, Cuba Gooding JR, Melanie Griffith and C Thomas Howell. She has produced content with Woodhead Entertainment with over 10 million views online. She has co-hosted shows ranging from Damn Not Another Sportz Show to City of Angels and now hosts her own show, Defining Moments, now available on Apple TV, Evertalk TV, and YouTube.
Like all protagonists her journey was filled with some hardships and struggles. From having the mother who was addict, feeling the loss of a miscarriage to overcoming divorce and tragedy. Suzanne has learned the importance of empathy and compassion. Learning one of her greatest life lessons, life happens FOR you not TO you. This was her ah-ha moment. You see all her pain and heartache made sense when she realized the only way “out” is “through” and that all of it, the good, the bad and the ugly are here to teach us and help us grow and evolve.
She found truth and power in connecting to and learning from other people who have overcome their own hardships. Her voracious curiosity and deep desire to understand human beings and their lives brings her to where she is now. It is her mission to learn from inspiring people, create a community of those courageous enough to share their stories. She truly believes there is so magic when you fearlessly own your story.
