A painter of words and trailblazer of dreams, Susan speaks from a place of heart, home, and faith. Nestled between Atlanta and North Georgia’s gentle foothills, she has navigated a homeschool adventure with her two sons for 14 years, graduating her eldest in 2017. Late night hours currently find her pouring out her first book, a hand-hold to women who find themselves single again. As the Chief Operating Officer of Bright Ideas Press, Susan is devoted to helping homeschool families discover the joy of actively questioning, observing, and learning together. She has provided curriculum reviews for many of the homeschool community’s most established authors and publishers. Susan is also dedicated to political activism and legislative lobbying for educational, parental, and religious freedoms.
Susan’s corporate background spans financial management, marketing, writing, editing, and publishing operations. Prior speaking engagements include: Florida Parent Educators Association (FPEA), MassHope, Great Homeschool Conventions (GHC), Homeschool Trade Association (HTA), and a number of financial/insurance trade associations.
