This is My Story
I am constantly reminded of the power of a choice. I’ve seen people struggle with decisions, take action and then soar. We are capable of incredible things. Every person I work with in my private practice, interact with in the courtroom, meet through my blog, or shoot the bull with in the gym – impresses me.
I believe we are all capable of difficult choices. It’s those choices that define us and teach us what we are made of, if we are really willing to listen. Call me a dreamer, an optimist, a perpetual student, or just call me productive. You are productive too. Maybe you just need someone to help you see it and then be it. I like keeping my body moving, writing a blog post, talking with one of my boys late at night, and friends who make me laugh from the bottom of my gut.
My dad still calls me Susie and I like that.
When I’m not working, I’m focused on life experiences. I live for today with where I want to be tomorrow influencing my decisions. I do what I do for a living because it reminds me of the power of choice, how smart we all really are, and how important it is to live your life… to the best of your ability.
