creativity takes courage ... 

 

Raised in rural Northern New York in the middle of nowhere, making order out of the surrounding grace and solitude, I crafted photography and writing. Think vast, cold, snow, people you love.

Telling stories with a purpose, I work on campaigns for personal, commercial, editorial and passion projects.  My marketing work has raised millions for philanthropic endeavors - winning many awards.  

"Susan's choreographed chronicles are used to build awareness and garner support for efforts that may otherwise be silent. Her documentation of a swimmer conquering the English Channel paved the way for ALS fundraising through athletic events. Her commitment to communicating and archiving the building of a community center, in a town that never had one, helped to raise over $6 million."

As an adoptive mother, I accepted the opportunity to document children within the foster care system who were available for adoption. Over the years I saw that these very adoptable children struggled in foster care and never found their forever families. It was out of this struggle that I founded Let It Be Us, the first nonprofit of its kind in Illinois.

I am currently working on creatively editing a book for a major political figure and that work will appear in 2017.  I am also setting the stage for an inspirational speaker to fill a calendar full of venues. I love the excitement of new projects and startups.  Contact me here.
