Susan Robison, Ph.D. is a psychologist, coach, consultant, and speaker with more than 30 years experience whose deepest satisfaction is inspiring and educating professionals, business owners, and executives who want to create lives of success and significance. Clients have referred to her as the "wind beneath my wings" as she helps them soar to heights of accomplishments while they create legacies in their work and personal lives. Susan's gentle style coupled with her no-nonsense insights have earned her the reputation as a leader who influences others to create organizations of purpose, prosperity, and significant.
Susan earned her undergraduate degree from Loyola University- Chicago and her advanced degrees from Ohio University where she met her psychologist husband. Her first career as a psychology professor prompted her to conduct research, design ground-breaking college courses, and write two books related to women and leadership ("Discovering Your Gifts" and "Sharing Your Gifts"). After achieving the rank of professor and serving as department chair in psychology at the College of Notre Dame of Maryland, she retrained in counseling and began a therapy practice with her husband where she has worked for 25 years specializing in individuals in transition and couples counseling. She continues to teach courses in leadership and human relations skills in the psychology and business departments of the College.
As more individuals and organizations have sought her services to help them deal with work-life balance and leadership issues, Susan founded her coaching/consulting/speaking company, Susan Robison and Associates. With wisdom and wit she offers concrete, effective tools for finding purpose, prosperity, and significance. The Executive Women's Network awarded Susan the 2003 Mandy Goetze award in recognition of Susan's professionalism and service to the Baltimore businesswomen's community. In 2008 she was selected at one of the Top 100 Minority Business Entrepreneurs in Maryland, D.C., and Virginia.
Susan began offering faculty development workshops and consultations in the early 1980's when she published research on writing across the curriculum. Presently, she focuses on work-life balance for college faculty and administrators and leadership skills for department chairs and division heads. She enjoys being a support to educators choosing lives of high productivity and low stress.
To maintain her own personal life balance, Susan enjoys quilting, traveling, and outdoor activities. She and her husband have combined their successful professional lives with a satisfying 39 year marriage in which they have raised their daughter, and shared their life-long hobby of ballroom dancing. Susan lives the concepts of success and significance and rates her non-work roles of wife, mother, grandmother, friend and volunteer as important as her work roles.
