EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE
Suzanne has a Bachelor’s Degree in foreign languages and speaks fluent Spanish She earned a Master’s Degree in National Security Affairs. In addition to her command tour and duties as special assistant to the Chief of Naval Operations, and ultimately as aide to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, she served tours in naval intelligence, taught political science at the U.S. Naval Academy, and was a plans and policy officer for the U.S. Southern Command. Her overseas assignments were in Panama and Japan. Her military decorations include the Combat Action Ribbon and the Defense Meritorious Service Medal.
The tragic death of Suzanne’s step-daughter, Susan, a sergeant in the Marine Corps who was struck and killed by lightning along with her unborn son, propelled Suzanne in a new direction in search of life’s deepest truths. When she first began researching and writing the Hay House published book, The Priest and the Medium, she never dreamed that she would one day connect with the unseen world herself.
After years of meditation, she began to have intuitive experiences, which led her to several classes on mediumship and to an intensive course at the respected Arthur Findlay College of Psychic Sciences in Stansted, England. Her eye-opening experiences there allowed her to develop her contact with the unseen world to the point where she is now in demand for her readings and her classes in evidence-based mediumship.
Suzanne has been happily married to her soulmate, Ty, a retired U.S. Navy Captain, since June of 1996. They enjoy an active life of travel with their two long-haired dachshunds, Rudy and Gretchen. Always seeking balance between work and play, they spend much time in nature hiking and bicycling.
Ty married a naval officer and not a medium, yet because of the irrefutable evidence that Suzanne is able to discern in her communication across the veil, he is fully convinced of the existence of the greater reality. Their unique relationship is chronicled in the video “What Does Love Look Like?” which can be seen in the media section of this site. With humor, insightful writing, and stunning photography, Ty chronicles their travels and adventures in his blog, www.LifeAsTySeesIt.com.
