Cancer. Burnout. Loss.

I have survived all of these wake-up calls and I am passionate about helping others live a more balanced life, naturally!  

Let’s work together to get things back on the right track.

For over 11 years, I worked in the corporate world doing team building, public speaking, negotiating, marketing and sales. I took a total leap of faith after my wake-up calls and left the corporate world to start my own company, Motivated by Nature. I am a huge advocate for the benefits of connecting with nature and the lessons she teaches with such ease and grace.  This is done through my Nature Challenges, Inspirational Speaking, Workshops and Award-Winning Children’s book.

Immersing yourself in nature can help you decrease stress, increase your immunity and bring more joy back into your life.

“Kudos to Susanne for motivating a team of thirty-five healthcare information technology specialists to dream and scheme of faraway places! Susanne provided a practical presentation about her climb up Mt. Kilimanjaro, encouraging creative action plans. Her storytelling provided valuable examples of personal awareness lessons that our team can apply both professionally and personally.”
