About Susan

When Susan’s nineteen-year-old niece was killed in 1999 by her ex-boyfriend, a victim of dating violence, Susan transformed the tragedy into a unique opportunity in her own life to have something good come out of such a senseless act of violence. Inspired by Maggie’s death, Susan vowed to help survivors move  beyond  the abuse and violence in their lives as Maggie could not. As her journey began as a secondary victim of a crime, Susan also realized that Maggie’s tragic death was a cautionary tale about missing the warning signs of abuse in a relationship as well as a catalyst for the kind of action needed to address domestic violence, sexual assault and all forms of gender-based violence in our communities. Susan’s award-winning prevention work and her innovative motivational model described as “life changing” has helped hundreds of women transform their lives after abuse and break the cycle of violence in their lives. By discovering that “living well is the best revenge,” survivors of abuse can reclaim their lives and become thrivers, strong, confident individuals with a brilliant, new future ahead of them.
