Office Hours

I have office hours on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month at Smokey Row from 9-11am. I set aside this time to answer people's questions regarding social media, their websites, general marketing, starting their own business and anything else they want to talk about. FOR FREE!

Suzanne is a Des Moines transplant who has realized the Power of being a Free Agent. Well-versed in many and varied skills, she has a passion for helping organizations and people achieve their potential. Suzanne = wife, traveler, multi-linguist, triathlete and cook.


Suzanne is aptly named the Get It Done Girl. Couldn't think of a better term myself for this capable professional. Ask and you shall receive. Suzanne requires very little direction and turns projects around quickly. She's been a wonderful addition to our team, and I would recommend her easily to anyone looking for a proficient, accountable and enjoyable team member.
