Susan is a life-long sci-fi, fantasy and science geek, and loves to incorporate her favorite hobbies into her current career of raising her two kids as a stay-at-home mom. She earned a Master of Science degree in Clinical Psychology, with specialties in Health Education and Behavioral Medicine. She stopped working when her first child was born, and has happily been at home ever since. She believes that including her kids in her hobbies not only strengthens her relationship with them, but also benefits their development of useful skills such as critical thinking, logic, creativity and reading comprehension, just to name a few. Susan currently hosts and produces the “How to Grow Your Geek” podcast.
