Experience: In the years since she completed her graduate-level certificate in Leadership Coaching from Georgetown University’s Institute for Transformational Leadership in 2009, Susan has helped scores of non-profit, higher education and socially-conscious for-profit leaders in over a dozen countries all over the world to become more effective and more fulfilled in their work.


Coaching credentials: In addition to her credentialed membership in the International Coach Federation as a Professional Certified Coach (PCC), Susan is also certified to administer the Leadership Circle Profile™ 360° evaluation instrument.  She is a Registered ICF Mentor Coach, and serves as an Alumni Mentor to students enrolled in Georgetown’s Leadership Coaching Program.  Susan belongs to the Growth Edge Network, a global association of practitioners who use adult development theory in coaching and organizational consulting work.  She is the author of Seasons of Leadership: A Self-Coaching Guide, which explores how the cycles of leading and learning mirror the cycle of the seasons.


A good fit: Susan’s leadership coaching will be the most beneficial if you are:

  • anticipating, or already experiencing, a personal or professional transition (whether or not the transition is happening under circumstances of your own choosing);
  • asking yourself questions such as, "am I stuck – and if so how do I get unstuck?" "what am I passionate about?" "how do I clarify and achieve my goals?" and "what else is possible?"
  • able to challenge your assumptions and beliefs by considering different perspectives;
  • willing to look back on your past experiences, observe yourself in the present, and play with new strategies;
  • open to being more authentic, and to discovering deeper meaning in your work by stretching into your growth edges.

“It is impossible not to be impacted when you’re being guided by Susan, whether she is coaching or facilitating. She brings a blend of intellect, wisdom, humor and creativity that allow her to ask the questions that need to be asked, and to ask them in a way that opens ears, minds, and hearts. Her presence is both grounded and uplifting, which means she can easily adapt to the wide spectrum of issues that can surface in individual coaching sessions or group dynamics. In each interaction I have had with Susan, I have experienced powerful shifts in perspective.”
