I’m American and I live in Germany. I am an opera singer a life coach and  Business English Trainer. I started this blog as part of my coach training requirements at www.icoachacademy.com .

I graduated from Ramona Convent High School in Alhambra, California and then studied at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles , California and University of Southern California, Los Angeles. I have a B.A. in Psychology and an M.A. in Music. I moved to Germany after a German agent heard me sing and invited me to come over and do some auditions. I did, and got a 2 year contract in an opera theater in Darmstadt, Germany. I met my husband Niklas there and decided to stay.

I have 2 children: Jojo 21 and Anna 16. We also have a dog, Bingo, 13.

When I decided to become a coach 2 years ago I didn’t realize how much internet know-how was required. I also didn’t know that I’d have to run a business. I’m slowly but surely learning about both.

Although this started out as a coaching blog, I’d like it to be a place where  coaches and other people  who are  struggling  with the new media as I am, can come on over and discuss the new blogs, articles and sites that are popping up everyday.

    Hi Suzy! I have just found your website and smiled. I am German, living in Australia since 23 years and just starting to become a lifecoach, committed to help other people. Here my mission statement (maybe you can relate to this??)..

    “To inspire people to believe in themselves and their greatness and empower them to live an extraordinary life which fully exresses their uniqueness to the world, and therefore making a difference to mankind.” ;O))

    Anyway, I have read something about ‘group coaching’. I have never heard about it here in Australia. Other coaches have given ‘workshops’ but never was ‘group coaching’ mentioned.. which sounds interesting. I am curious. Can you let me know a bit more about it or where I can find some info>??

    Where abouts in Germany are you situated?? I am actually coming in July for a quick visit!!!

    Viele Gruesse und alles Gute.
