Not just an incredibly beautiful and creative thinker, Suzanne turns everything she touches into a one-of-a-kind treasure. When she’s not playing on a slack-line, rock-climbing, doing acro-yoga, or with her kitten Walter, she’s probably playing somewhere else. Her hugs will change the way you feel about life.
