Office Hours

I have office hours on the 2nd & 4th Thursdays of the month at Smokey Row from 9-11am. I set aside this time to answer questions regarding social media, websites, general marketing and anything else. Come on by and pick my brain FOR FREE!


I leveraged Suzanne’s social media experience and expertise recently. We walked through the social media tools that I currently use, and she helped me understand how to better utilize each one. We reviewed my online profiles together and she gave me recommendations for improvement and also shared some hidden features that I didn’t know about. I walked away from each session with clarity and a list of simple but impactful actions I could immediately take to improve my online presence. Thank you, Suzanne; it was truly a wonderful experience!
