Education and Experience

Suzanne has a Bachelor’s Degree in foreign languages and speaks fluent Spanish She earned a Master’s Degree in National Security Affairs. In addition to her command tour and duties as special assistant to the Chief of Naval Operations, and ultimately as aide to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, she served tours in naval intelligence, taught political science at the U.S. Naval Academy, and was a plans and policy officer for the U.S. Southern Command. Her overseas assignments were in Panama and Japan. Her military decorations include the Combat Action Ribbon and the Defense Superior Service Medal.


The tragic death of Ty’s daughter and Suzanne’s step-daughter, Susan, a sergeant in the Marine Corps who was struck and killed by lightning along with her unborn son, propelled Suzanne in a new direction in search of life’s deepest truths. When she first began researching and writing the Hay House published book, The Priest and the Medium, she never dreamed that she would one day connect with the unseen world herself.

After years of meditation, she began to have intuitive experiences, which led her to several classes on mediumship and to an intensive course at the respected Arthur Findlay College of Psychic Sciences in Stansted, England. Her eye-opening experiences there allowed her to develop her contact with the unseen world to the point where she is now in demand for her readings and her classes in evidence-based mediumship.

Suzanne receives messages daily from her guides in spirit, a group of advanced teachers known as Sanaya. These are published daily on her blog, The Daily Way, as well as her Facebook Page and in the Awakened Way App.
