& PERSONAL TRAINER
Sue started her career in the lab, where she found herself overweight and unhealthy. When she became injured and couldn't find anyone else to fix her, she started fixing herself. Overcoming her weight loss and retiring from research vaulted her into fitness where she's been an Athletic Therapist for 28 years, a personal trainer for 30 years and was even a part of the original aerobics trend. She started with performance, but now focuses on return to play - helping non-functional people become functional again.

Like most people I let life take over and neglected the most important thing…taking care of myself! I had watched lots of people run the Parkland stairs so I decided to give them a shot. There was this spunky lady, Michele Doucette, crushing the stairs – she was extremely easy to talk to, offered up some suggestions on how to make running the stairs more interesting and asked if I would like to come for an assessment to see if she could offer anything more to help me. Michele and the Synapse method have brought me to a new level of fitness and focus. It doesn’t matter if it is a one-on-one session or a group session - the focus is always on quality, functional movement.
