Susanna has been a personal fitness trainer since 1995 when she received her certification from the internationally recognized American Council on Exercise or ACE. Two years later she completed her pre and postnatal certification from the American Aerobics Association International and the International Sports Medicine Association. Although she has worked with a variety of populations, including sports specific, teens, the elderly and post-rehab, her greatest satisfaction lies in working with pre and postnatal clientele.
To that end, she has worked in New York City at the Sports Club L.A. and New York Sports Clubs where she specialized in pre and postnatal fitness. In addition, she has worked as a fitness consultant to Merrill Lynch, Barclay's Bank, Deloitte & Touche, and the New York Mercantile Exchange, as well as Lehman Brothers and American Express where she helped establish pre and postnatal programs. Since 2001, she has been working exclusively as a private consultant to pre and postnatal clients within their homes.
Susanna holds a BA from Harvard University, where she majored in psychology. Prior to her undergraduate studies, Susanna studied classical flute performance at the School of Performing Arts in New York City. She has travelled extensively and lived in Rio De Janeiro, Rome, and Buenos Aires. Her varied interests include playing field hockey, reading, mixed media art, cooking, photography, dancing and baseball.
She feels especially fortunate to have wonderful family, friends and clients and is particularly grateful for the many fun filled moments shared with her clients' adorable babies after they are born.
