About Us

image1

Susan Sharp grew up in Eastern Iowa on the banks of the Mississippi river.  That rural upbringing irrevocably shaped her to love quiet, fresh air, and open spaces.  But for all the quiet she craves, she has a 24/7 internal buzz of creative ideas and she often cannot get them on paper fast enough.  Susan just recently left her job as a professor of theatre and public speaking after 23 years to focus full time on speaking, art and writing.  Susan loves dogs, sewing, singing, Big Band music, crafting and art among many other things; she resides in Galesburg, Illinois for now. Thanks for reading about us--the whole team of people behind Susan's life as a motivational speaker, including her calendar, thank you!
