Susan was born and raised on Long Island, NY, and is a graduate of SUNY New Paltz. Her first poetry collection, Through the Oak Tree, was recently published by Kelsay Books.
Susan was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in 2001. She learned about the SCD in 2005 when her boyfriend (now husband) found Breaking the Vicious Cycle on Amazon. He couldn’t understand how doctors kept telling her diet didn’t matter. Susan started the diet and has had great success with it bringing her into remission. Susan is humbled to serve the SCD community which has been an unwavering source of strength, support and wisdom.
