Having discovered the innumerable benefits of living a Paleo lifestyle in 2011, Susan veered out of the fast lane and enrolled at Bauman College to pursue an education in nutrition, a subject that had quickly become her passion.
A long-time recovered addict and alcoholic herself, Susan specializes in clients with current and previous battles with substance abuse and food addiction. She has over 13 years experience working with those suffering from substance abuse. She uses a Paleo template – including diet, supplementation and lifestyle modifications – to support their recovery. As helping people recover from addiction is very near and dear to her, Susan volunteers as a facilitator at P.O.W.E.R., a 12-step recovery workshop for women.

In 2012, she added food policy to her credentials while researching, creating, and successfully implementing programs within local schools to bring all children access to healthier foods.
