Hi, and welcome to my blog, The Conscious Communicator. My name is Susan, and I am a writer and college professor who has extensive experience working in the communication field. I have taught or currently each a range of communication courses  —  human communication, business communication, public relations, strategic social media, public speaking, blogging, feature writing, technical writing, personal branding and career/portfolio preparation to undergraduate and graduate students in Philadelphia. I work with high school students, too, coaching them on writing their college essays.

I am also an author/co-author (here’s my Amazon page) of a range of books, and a wife and a mom to one son who is 21 years old.

I am here to help you be a more conscious communicator  —  meaning you are able to be clear, calm and accurate in your thinking and self-communication, which will then help you better and more fully communicate with others. The tips and advice you will find here are indeed a mix of the truly practical  —  from optimizing your LinkedIn page to overcoming your fear of public speaking  —  along with the unapologetically inspirational  — how to know you’re in creative flow to being okay with not knowing what comes next. 

I hope you find the posts here helpful and inspiring, and if you do, please follow my blog, share the posts, and please let me know if there is any communication advice you would like to see here.
