Office Hours

I have office hours on the 2nd & 4th Thursdays of the month at Smokey Row from 9-11am. I set aside this time to answer questions regarding social media, websites, general marketing and anything else. Come on by and pick my brain FOR FREE!


Suzanne was great to work with on our Iowa film premiere of the Glen Campbell "I'll Be Me" documentary event in February 2015. She successfully brought three organizations together to organize and execute an event that generated considerable attention, with over 1,900 registered attendees.

Suzanne is highly organized, efficient and easy to work with and I'd highly recommend her and her talents to anyone looking for an event planner, marketing or project management professional.
