Susan was born in Lancaster, PA (Dutch Country) and lived there until age 13. She then moved to Chicago and has since found her way back East, and to Earthdance.
Susan is excited by creativity, flavors, colors, movement, music, her son!, experiences that help her feel connected to the earth, taste!, smell, texture, and rhythms. Susan's creativity comes from being earth-centered and believes that dancing and cooking feed one another. Susan is driven to create an uplifting and nourishing culinary experience that will stimulate the senses and feel good! Susan's meals are flavorful, organic, fresh and made with love.
Susan has been cooking since before the age of three. She learned a lot from her mother who was a farm cook, and has cooked for many many people from a young age. Susan wasn't allowed to dance until about age 10, (even though she did secretly), so growing up cooking was a big way of creative expression. She later went on to study dance & theater along with the culinary arts at Marlboro College in Vermont, and at NYU in New York.
Susan is sensitive and informed about people's special diets and wants people to feel comfortable asking for what they need!
