Healing spirits and transcending the boundaries of language with flowers


Long considered an expert in the fields of caregiving and dementia care, Suzanne’s unique ability to comprehend the often complex needs arising from this diagnosis has helped guide thousands of families over the past 30 years. Her expertise has led to the development of numerous Alzheimer’s and dementia-based curriculum aimed at training professionals.  ​​

Suzanne is also an award-winning pressed floral artist and illustrator. Her unique designs, which combine her pen & ink illustrations with flowers grown and pressed from her garden on Cape Cod, resulted from her exposure to various pressing techniques used around the world. For more than two decades, Suzanne maintained membership in the Pressed Flower Guild of Great Britain, The International Pressed Flower Art Society and World Wide Pressed Flower Guild. She has had the opportunity to travel around the world using her pressed floral techniques to bring joy through a medium that transcends the boundaries of language.

Flowers have long been known to heal the spirit in many ways. Suzanne’s desire to connect individuals to the natural world around them has led to the creation of her book, Flowering Your Mind, so everyone can enjoy the benefits of improving brain health with flowers.
