Suzanne is a Florida native, born and raised in the Orlando area, and has spent much of her time working and playing in many other parts of the country to satisfy a curious and passion-filled spirit. While serving in the U.S. Navy, she gained new insights, understanding, and compassion for the human experience. During this time, she seized the opportunity to travel to foreign countries, expanding her knowledge and awareness of other world cultures; her adventures included extended travel to Italy, Germany, Portugal, Spain, and Saudi Arabia, as well as travel to almost all 50 states. These experiences culminated in the realization of her dream to help others embrace the wonders available to every human being through the five senses, and to help end emotional suffering… one person at a time. With this vision in mind, she received her Masters in Clinical Social Work from the University of Missouri-Columbia while also working with individuals who have developmental disabilities such as Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, Autism, Asperger’s, and Down’s Syndrome, with co-occurring mental illness.
