SPARKD Life Design
for me, your development is personal
After years of settling for an outwardly successful life/career that was in reality suffocating me slowly, I finally decided to do something about it. What started as a mission to forge my own path and spark LIFE back into my...well, life...has transformed into a system that helps others do the same; step confidently into their full authentic selves, tap into their unique gifts and show up in their lives like never before as their whole, inspired, SPARKD self.
I'm a ICF Certified coach, mentor & life design strategist for multi-faceted, high-achievers who want to bring their full authentic selves to life, harnessing their power to spark the world - on their terms, their way.
My initial exposure to coaching was teaching & mentoring students in high school. This turned into coaching/mentoring pre-med students, serving as a TA in college, then subsequently starting my own coaching company focusing on ADHD, study skills & executive function. All while conducting medical research at NYU Langone Medical Center & working on various NIH-funded research studies. I guess you could call me a life long learner!
Fast forward a decade or so (where I spent discovering every industry imaginable)... I continue to serve as a guide, mentor and coach. I help ambitious, high-achievers pivot from overwhelm, burnout & disconnection to living fully inspired & aligned with their soul’s purpose.
Reclaim your life. Pivot from surviving on autopilot to thriving with intention. Rekindle your spark, reconnect with your truth, rise into your power & live life with authentic alignment. Level up. It’s time to design a life you’re obsessed with.
"Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."

you have a unique purpose
You know there's something more you're meant for.
But you're unsure what. Or how. Or where.
Something is missing.
CLARITY would be great right about now.
Something needs to change.
But you don't know what.
There has to be a better way.
There is a better way.
Let me show you how.
You’re here to make a difference in the world.
We say that people are born with a life purpose. Some people never look for their purpose, and so it remains unspoken their whole lives. But it is there. The life purpose is the reason we are on this planet. It is the thing we are meant to accomplish, the gift we are meant to bring. Life purpose is not about a job or even an avocation. It is the round-the-clock, twenty-four-hour, every-day-of-your-life expression of who you are when you are reaching your full potential.
On a mission to spark people to bring their full authentic selves to life.
I’m a Whole Person Certified Coach (WPCC), and a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) meaning I’ve completed a 125-hour training program accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF) at the PCC level. The Whole Person Coaching method employs a multi-modality approach equipped to assist people to mastermind life transitions by leveraging their whole self. It integrates techniques from Archetypal Systems Coaching, Positive Psychology, Somatic Psychology, Meta-Learning, Developmental Psychology, NLP, Attachment Theory, and other scientifically grounded, evidence-based areas of practice. As a Whole Person Coach, I champion my clients to embrace, embody and express their whole self —mental, emotional, physical, social, and spiritual—to step into their full potential and their highest expression.

“Suzanna is a wonderful coach! She is always incredibly present with me, asking thought provoking questions that help me to think about my situation in new ways and brainstorm how to bring my whole self into my life’s goals.
Throughout our coaching relationship I have felt completely supported in my process. Together we have mapped out some very clear steps to take with my career while still incorporating self-care into my routine.
Suzanna particularly helped me as a woman in leadership, trying to navigate those challenges.
When I started coaching with Suzanna, I felt frustrated, overwhelmed, and feeling as if my power was being given away.
After our sessions, I felt much more clear, focused, and determined to take that power back! I walked away feeling super excited to move forward in my goals and to include my whole self in the process. I highly recommend Suzanna as a coach!"
Is this you?
On the outside you seem to have it all together, inside you're feeling overwhelmed, stuck & disorganized. Longing to connect with a deeper sense of self, gain clarity about your particular situation & how to break free from the cycle.
Transform Inner Chaos Into Opportunity
Even the most accomplished leaders feel torn inside at times - overwhelmed by complexity, eroding self-confidence, longing for direction. Yet the most transcendent innovators across industries and cultures through history have harnessed inner storms to propel uncharted impact aligned to their values.
As a coach who works extensively with high-achieving leaders, innovators, and change-makers, I understand the immense pressure to package poise externally when crumbling inside. Sustainable success awakens your authentic inner strength catalyzing your aspirations into palpable reality.
My multidimensional background - spanning from medical researcher to Global CMO - equipped me to guide clients to:
Illuminate Blindspots Sabotaging Their Potential
Transform Turbulence Into Rocket Fuel For Goals
Unearth Their Inner Compass To Guide Bold Convictions
Are you ready to elevate your capacity for mindful leadership (first and foremost leading yourself), positive impact and lasting influence?
I offer immersive 6-month coaching for multidimensional leaders and high-achievers seeking to turn inner chaos into opportunity.
Let’s connect to discuss achieving thriving clarity and purposeful direction. The catalyst for change starts from within.
My joy in life & what makes me come alive: Empowering dynamic coaching clients seeking transformation. You got this! And I'm here to support you every step of the way.
