Susan's Body of Work

I have been in the acting business for more than 25 years. I have worked in both NYC and LA, acting and writing for TV, film, and theater. My credits include Star Trek: Next 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. 

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

Let’s just say, I’ve been around the block.

Six years ago, I decided to apply my skills and experience to help actors jumpstart their careers. What I give to new actors is what I wished I had when I started out: instant knowledge of how the industry works and a guiding hand.

As a coach I have helped people find their voice, land jobs, and achieve their goals. I’d like to help you do the same. Give me a call and we can 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.
