After struggling for years with migraine headaches and various other ‘unrelated’ maladies, Sue, set me on the road to recovery through making healthy lifestyle changes. … My body is happier. She cuts to the heart of the matter and her enthusiasm, knowledge, and humor speaks to me. I highly recommend Sue’s services.” 

–Sandee M.

“I thank God for Sue’s insight and for the first time, am now concentrating on putting ‘me’ first with self-care, exercise, prayer, and meditation.”

–Stephanie H.

“With Sue’s help, I’ve learned that ‘I CAN do it’ when it comes to making healthier choices. I now feel better about myself!” 

–Patricia J.

“People tell me they’ve seen a change in me, after participating in Sue’s program. And, I’m feeling it too!” 

–Susie F.


I received so much value from Sue’s program that I would have gladly paid far more than I did. Her enthusiastic teaching approach and knowledge made this course invaluable. I continue to work with Sue one-on-one and have experienced improvements in my business, family life, personal relationships, and most of all, in my own revitalized health. I feel motivated to make healthy changes and empowered and supported to see it happen. My life has been changed forever.

–Leslie F.

“I have failed so many times in the past when it comes to making changes in my eating and emotional habits. Sue has helped me to see that it’s not an all or nothing proposition. One step at a time, one choice at a time and every day is a new day. I am embracing God’s grace by giving myself grace too.” 

–Jo M.

“Sue’s program has helped me to transition to making better food choices without being on a ‘diet.’ I’m more aware of my negative self-talk. When grocery shopping, my mind-set is completely new. I read labels using the guidelines I was given in Sue’s class. Unexpected nutritional, spiritual, and emotional discoveries are the side effects of this program.”

–Leslie P.

“My frame of mind with making healthier food choices has definitely changed after taking Sue’s program. I’m more aware of the choices I make and I plan better according to my personal goals. I look forward to a healthier future with continued results.”

–Jack M.


In almost five years, and after attempting many different medications and treatments, I finally feel that what I’ve learned in working with Sue will lead to better results. I feel I have the tools needed to change the course of my life just as she did hers. There’s no question that Sue’s program exceeded my expectations.

–Val G.

“Sue’s program totally changed my thought process. I learned so many interesting and great things and am already healthier for it.” 

–Robert O.

“Sue’s invaluable information has shown me that I am worth the time and effort it takes to get healthier.” 

Darci D.

“It’s pretty wild that I get the greatest information on wellness from you, Sue, and not from my doctors.” 

–Barbara H.
