“Surviving is important. Thriving is elegant!"
— Maya Angelou
Beyond Surviving, Thriving!
After the death of Susan's niece Maggie, a nineteen-year-old college student who was killed in 1999 by her ex-boyfriend, Susan vowed to work with women who, unlike Maggie, survived abuse and could move on to reclaim their lives.
Today, Susan's work is emcompassed in The Thriver Workbook: Journey from Victim to Survivor to Thriver!, which inspires women to break permanently out of the cycle of violence in their lives and embrace the thriver energy.
Susan's work has inspired others to celebrate the thriver inside them, and from that encouragement comes The Thriver Workbook Companion CD. With five songs from three amazing singer/songwriters plus a Guided Meditation and an Affirmation, the Companion CD offers a way not only to find the positive energy inside, but also to keep it focused toward accomplishing new and exciting thriver goals for the future.
Susan is an extraordinary person who has taken on cutting-edge work with women who have been abused in memory of her niece Maggie who did not have the opportunity move on to thrive after abuse. Today Susan is telling Maggie's story as well as her own as a victim and survivor of a violent crime who has found her purpose and mission in life in services of others.Take me to the Store!
