About Susan

Clients call me the “starter” because I take new actors and unlock their potential. I help actors bring their talent to the forefront and develop the skills and wisdom to navigate the increasingly complex and competitive acting industry. 

By working with me, you will jumpstart your career and create a plan for fulfilling your short- and long-term dreams. I believe in developing the whole actor, meaning that my clients hone their craft, establish life goals, and gain the business savvy to thrive as an actor. 

I have a variety of packages. You can learn more about them here.
