National Leadership & Teaching Team
Suzanne Baker Brown - Founder and Primary Teacher (Contact at firstname.lastname@example.org)
Suzanne is passionate about helping people to step into the life they were created to live. She has a gift for seeing who people can be and what they can do and encouraging them to step toward it. Her guidance always includes: get to know your Creator, invest in a committed group of spiritual friends, and turn to God to help you become your most healthy, loving and authentic self. The Spiritual Spa was founded in 2000 for this purpose. Suzanne’s teaching helps people come to know the heart of God and deal with real life issues and problems, using the life of Jesus and the Bible as the basis. Suzanne has been through a lot in life and in her personal search to know God; this experience is hallmark in her transparent and empathic teaching and counseling style. Whether she’s teaching alone or designing an event with several speakers, her background in music, theater and art are evident in the experience. She has taught throughout the US and Asia and has worked with churches such as Willow Creek, Soul City, Park Community, Moody, Christ Church of Lake Forest, the Vineyard, St. Patrick's Catholic Church, and the Covenant denomination's teen conference. Suzanne consistently invests in mentoring the next generation, developing and refreshing leaders, and teaching people how to sense and follow the Holy Spirit. Suzanne is action oriented when it comes to helping people who have come out of tough stuff rebuild their lives, having launched Stepping Stones Network, a group addressing the issue of sex trafficking and The White Rainbow Project that reaches out to outcast widows in India. Suzanne has a Master’s from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and a rich background in leadership in the not-for-profit and business sectors, including experience as a change management and learning consultant to Fortune 50 and global professional services firms. She continues to train and coach business leaders through her Relationship Driven Leadership program. Suzanne resides in Chicago with her husband Steve. She cherishes her family and friends and loves great views, gardens, power walks on the beach, golf, sailing, film, horses and dogs.
