During her cheerleading venture, she witnessed the transformative power of taking care of oneself alongside a community of like minded women. The firsthand experience inspired her to share invaluable lessons learned to guide others on their journey towards a healthier, more balanced life. Suzette's belief of self-care was instilled as a core value & has been a powerful catalyst for bringing positive change and overall wellbeing to women for over 7 years.
