Please note that Bridging Gaps - The Business Podcast is moving and is now available at

Sharing the challenges and stories of fellow business owners! 

Jul 15, 2018


Speaking to Suzie is pure joy - her enthusiasm and belief about what she does can't be contained. Suzie shares who she helps and why as well as her own story from being a shy quiet child to an adult who was using partying as way to feel bolder. She realised this wasn't what she wanted her life to be and as she made changes discovered how strongly she wants to help people change their lives and to live their life their way rather than be constrained by their bodies.

The strength of her belief & desire to help people shines through.

Her approach is pragmatic, holistic and she really is an inspiration!
