Susan’s goal for her mentees is to help them become excellent therapists in order to optimize outcomes, thereby improving patient satisfaction, referrals, and career enjoyment. One CLT said, You really “care.” You want to teach your colleagues the tools they need to feel confident. You explain things so well and in an easy way to understand and I am able to feel more relaxed and ready to make a difference in someone’s life. Another mentee said LEAP is what put the “fire back in my belly” for being a dietitian again!!! Many others say that LEAP has doubled their business!
Susan provides extensive guidance in the form of one-on-one mentoring, covering theory as well as practical application of the LEAP protocols, going over patient results or even providing the opportunity to listen in on one of her virtual patient consults. Group interaction is also encouraged through the LEAP listserv or the LEAP practitioner Facebook page, where Susan is an active, daily “admin” and participant.
She is a sought-after speaker, having presented numerous local, state, and national meetings and conferences, in addition to many radio interviews and contributions to magazine articles. She recently published a chapter on “Irritable Bowel Syndrome: The “Other” Inflammatory Bowel Disease,” in the international e-book AAPI’S Nutrition Guide to Optimal Health: Using Principles of Functional Medicine & Nutritional Genomics https://bit.ly/2wBvfH0
Susan is active in many professional associations including the Institute of Functional Medicine and many Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics practice groups (DIFM, SCAN, NE, DIGID, AIND). She is the 2018-2019 chair for the DIFM Nominating Committee and recipient of the 2015 DIFM Excellence in Practice Award.
