Susan's Body of Work

Susan have been in the acting business for more than 25 years. She has worked in NYC, LA, and IL: acting for TV, film and theater, coaching, and public speaking. Her credits include Star Trek: TheNext Generation, Murder One, Profiler, Roseanne Barr Movie of the Week, Saved By the Bell, Saved By the Bell: The College Years, Murder She Wrote, and many others.

She has assisted with casting and has worked for two different management companies, submitting actors for auditions. Susan has been trained in many different acting approaches, from Method to cutting edge Hollywood techniques.

Six years ago, She decided to apply her skills and experience to help actors jump start their careers. What Susan gives to new actors is what she wished she had when she started out: instant knowledge of how the industry works and a guiding hand.

As a coach she has helped people find their voice, land jobs, and achieve their goals. She would like to help you do the same. Give her a call and discuss your ambition and needs. The initial 30-minute consultation is free.

Susan is a truly wonderful person of great character. She is a multi-talented professional with a deep knowledge of the entertainment industry. I have rarely run across someone that exhibits such commitment, preparation, desire and talent.
