Losing her mother at an early age, Dr. Susan Meyers' childhood and adolescent years were tumultuous and filled with uncertainty. Despite the challenges she faced, Susan was always a leader but she didn’t recognize her strength and power until her post graduate years. This self discovery encouraged her to help others discover and own their own unique power and strength. Today Susan helps men and women create the life they want and a clear path to success. Her extensive experience in life, career and transition coaching helps her clients take an informed look at their own life and build on what’s revealed. Her skills in getting to the heart of issues and working with clients to craft clear plans grew out of years of teaching preschool through grad school and training trainers and line staff through executive managers. Susan’s career in municipal government focused on creating innovative programs that helped people realize their full potential, including developing the first city wide managerial certificate program with cross agency mentoring, multi course trainer development certificate programs and the first internal coaching program within a city agency. She is the author of FIFTY OVER FIFTY: Wise and Wild Women Creating Wonderful Lives (And You Can Too) as well as I’m Susan and I’m a Serial Careerist: 7 Success Strategies for a Unique Career.
