“Susan is an outstanding coach. Lots of energy; always prepared; responsive; thoughtful. Susan’s questions challenged me to think about career goals and achievements. Her “why?”, “how?”, and “what?” questions are always thoughtful and get to the heart of a statement.

It was an incredibly empowering exercise, though I had originally set out solely to get her help in preparing a more effective CV.”Nora V. Demleitner, Proffessor of Law
