About me

Lots of words describe me: writer, editor, runner, wife, step-mom, friend, coach, recovering perfectionist, volunteer, champion of worthy causes, lover of dogs, food and baseball ...

I want my epitaph to say, "Well done, good and faithful servant." I want to serve others and bring glory to my Creator while I'm doing it.

I look for ways to step outside my comfort zone, because I believe it's the only way to grow stronger and wiser. I don't want to waste an opportunity to learn.

I wrestle with things, and I hope that in my wrestling I can help others who struggle.

I'm a certified wellness coach and a certified running coach, and I write a blog that focuses on wellness, fitness and running. You can find my wellness blog (established in June 2015) here: To Well With You, and the related social media page here: Facebook: To Well With You

The other place I write is what I call the "big-sister blog" – I've been writing there since 2007, and the topics are more general. You can find it here: Suzy & Spice

I hope you'll visit both blog sites, see something you like and subscribe to one or both.
