SUZY TORONTO ROCKED-THE-HOUSE!! With the perfect blend of humor and poignancy, Suzy shared openly personal aspects of her story that endeared our audience to her. She provided both inspiration and road map for all in the wake of devastating news. Suzy has an uncanny ability to positively pivot both her perspective and her path, channeling her artistic talents, meeting what Life presents with Grace and Gratitude. So-Much-Fun!!!
