Hi! I’m Susana (pronounced like “iguana”), and I’m a transformational life & leadership coach and trauma-informed resilience practitioner. I’ve been thinking about collapse since the mid-90s, and my core commitment is to “create a world that works better for more of us” even if that “world” is just person-sized.

My first career was in diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), where I spent nearly 30 years garnering results for employers and clients as an internal subject matter expert, organizational leader, and external consultant and trainer. I’ve worked in corporate, nonprofit, educational, healthcare and government organizations across the U.S. and a dozen additional countries. I hold degrees from UCLA and University of New Mexico, and studied at UNAM in Mexico City.

I’ve been coaching for about 14 years. I’m a Certified Professional Coach (CPC), having completed a rigorous year-long coach training in 2014. I’m also a Professional Certified Coach (PCC), credentialed by the International Coaching Federation (ICF). I also mentor newer coaches, and train coaches to be trauma-informed.

I’m a Certified Facilitator of The Resilience Toolkit, a trauma-informed, body-focused stress management modality. It consists of eight tools informed by 13 scientific models, grounded in a social justice framework. Since its practices transformed my life in 2019, I’ve taught them to hundreds of people in multiple walks of life in eight countries.

I’m also a writer, poet, and creative. My articles and poems have appeared in multiple commercial publications, academic journals, and anthologies. I live in Los Angeles, but I also call Albuquerque and Guadalajara (Mexico) home. Outside of work I feel most alive hiking in wild places, dancing hip hop, savoring incredible food and invigorating conversation, hugging trees, watching raptors, and bellylaughing.
