Suzanne’s passion for training and equipping began early in her career. After graduating from the University of Alabama she began her career with Talbots. Suzanne ran a $30 million dollar district and enjoyed the business aspects of the industry, however, found her true heartbeat was identifying upcoming leaders, training and equipping them and placing them into key roles within the larger organization. Suzanne left Talbots to raise her family and eventually found herself drawn to leading and facilitating women’s Bible studies in several different arenas. As her children grew her attention shifted to leading Bible studies for youth. After a season of consulting administrators and coaching teachers and parents at several area schools, Suzanne recognized a need to engage students and parents through a discipleship model of education.
