EARLY CAREER & BACKGROUND

As a child she took classical piano lessons and later began performing in churches, pageants and talent contests. After graduating from high school as Class President, Valedictorian, and 4-sport athlete, she attended the University of Central Arkansas where she was a member of the Honors College, the university jazz band, and was President of Alpha Sigma Tau Sorority-Upsilon Chapter.

She also completed her Private Pilot's License at Central Flying in Little Rock, Arkansas June 2009. After a few years in corporate world, she made the daring decision to leave her "day job" and devote herself to a full-time career in music. After a few years of working her way up through local piano bars, shows in Branson, Missouri, and finally a lucrative house gig in Los Angeles, Susan made the move to Las Vegas in 2011 where her "calculated risk" (as she calls it) paid off, and her dream of success in the entertainment industry became a reality.
