She successfully built all aspects of the business including: training, operations, development strategies and marketing that eventually lead to the nominations for Excellence in Customer Service (2008) followed by Business Person of the Year (2009). Susan’s passion for health through stress relief led her to hypnotherapy in 2006 after seeing her daughter’s long standing 4 year barrier to writing math exams dissolve in 1 session. A new passion emerged as Susan realized she had found a therapeutic solution that offered permanent healing. Susan chose Coastal Academy’s training programs because she recognized the same key ingredients present under Leslie’s leadership:commitment to quality, excellence, respect and caring for the development and success of Coastal students and graduates.
