Susanne is a promoter of self-responsibility in health. She leads by example through her own commitment to health and wellness. She encourages others to do what is right for their bodies. To listen within and give themselves the care that is not a luxury, but a necessity. Neglecting our bodies has negative impacts on every aspect of our lives. To thrive as women, we must adopt a positive mindset and take care of our bodies.
