Why, hello there.
I am Susan, and I am a farmer, scientist, systems-thinker, and strategist.
I specialize in offering highly individualized, strategic technical support for Earth-centric humans with ambitious projects. My key services include:
🌿 overview planning (circular calendars are my current jam for getting 'everything out front' in 2022!),
🌿 custom spreadsheets,
🌿 editing and proofreading,
🌿 critical feedback on client reports, grant applications and proposals, and
🌿 long-article or book project organization and custom science-based research.
My techstack includes Google Suite, Notion, Trello, Scrivener, Zotero, Affinity Designer and some QGIS basics.
Do you have a big, hairy, audacious project you want to create? I'd love to work with you in 2022.
(Need to know a little bit more about me, who I help, and how I help them.... and how I can help you, too? Then head on over here).
Create a custom seasonal calendar to keep on top of the most important events throughout the year: quarterly, seasonal planning for gardens, livestock, construction and business. **Next workshop: September 1st, 2022 at 10 AM Pacific**

A 60-minute webinar with Q&A where I walk you step-by-step through my process, developed over 20 years in academia, research and science communication, to better discern if what you're reading is fluff or fact.
We come out to your property and do a full walk-around, taking notes, photos and asking questions, and have some time to sit down and talk about different challenges and opportunities. We then go home and make a summary report of ~2 pages for you, which we share as a PDF, highlighting key elements and priorities based on our assessment. Turn-around time for this is approximately 5 days as we often take some time to let things percolate, sit and talk over dinner, and it allows us our preferred 'go slow to go fast' approach to land design.
Having trouble getting clear on what you really want and where you want to go in life? I created this short workbook based on over 6 years of working in holistic life design, with mentors and then with my own clients, to get clarity, direction and calm in times of overwhelm.
