Suzan has a great deal of knowledge as a writer of practical and academic studies, reports and proposals. She knows how to put it all together and the fact that she is also a life coach means that she understands how to help you with advancing yourself through writing. She is energetic and supportive as well. A really positive experience.

She was highly productive during the time we worked together. She is talented and skilled enough to work on multiple projects. Skilled in grant writing, speech writing, consulting, and coaching. I highly recommend her without hesitation or reservation.
