Either you run the day, or the day runs you. –Jim Rohn

Susan uses her experiences, her positive attitude, and high-energy level to connect with people and show them how they, too, can pursue their dreams and achieve their goals. She shares incredible personal stories of success, failure, persistence, team work, perseverance, hard work, and how these qualities shaped her into the athlete and person she is today. From the rowing fanatic to the rare sports-follower, people who attend Susan's talks will be able to relate to the trials and tribulations it takes to win.
She has done speaking engagements for a wide range of audiences including inner-city high school students, top executives at corporations, and even international dignitaries such as Donald Rumsfeld. She has spoken at the corporate headquarters for Citigroup, company retreat for Oakley, and at a conference for Johnson & Johnson. She has traveled all over the country and even as far as Afghanistan to share her story. Sometimes she uses a powerpoint presentation to portray pictures of her journey but sometimes it's simply her and a microphone. 

Clients include: International Youth Foundation, Johnson & Johnson, Oakley, Citigroup, San Diego Crew Classic, University of San Diego, University of Pennsylvania, UPenn Neurosurgery, Hungarian Embassy, San Diego City Council, high schools, and rowing clubs around the US
