Susan Simpson’s diverse background and skill set lead many to consider her a relational and professional “bridge” in the process of change. While at Frito-Lay, she established a prototype position that pulled together Operations and Marketing by unifying values, goals and perspectives for dramatic financial returns. Later opportunities led her to start-ups and entrepreneurism, as well as international nonprofit work centered on people development. Her vision for coaching was birthed in this role.
Susan’s extensive worldwide travel, fluent Russian, and life abroad in executive leadership and liaison positions, fuel her “open to the uncommon” perspective. Socially ambidextrous, she relates with individuals at all levels of business and is known not only as confident and determined, but also as compassionate, engaged and supportive.
Her coaching style expresses her passion for coming alongside individuals (and teams) in their journey to discover and deliver their potential, ultimately helping others to do the same. Susan’s holistic insight into people inspires her clients toward change and encourages significant personal and professional results.
Susan earned a BS degree in Industrial Engineering from Kansas State University. She graduated with academic honors, championships and records while captaining her NCAA Division I Basketball Team. Her professional coach training is through Coach U, and she is a member of the International Coaching Federation (ICF).
Traveling between Colorado and Russia allows Susan to pursue her love of people, writing and music, cycling and partnering with her husband in their award-winning artisan truffle business, The Chocolate Bordello.
