Susan has 20 years of experience developing strategies that balance the impact of 24/7 digital connectivity. In 1997 Susan founded ABC Legacy which is committed to helping people power down from their devices, learn technology awareness, and use mindfulness practices to minimize digital distractions for professional, academic, athletic and personal success. Her work is based in the belief that reducing screen time and integrating mindful practices with a healthy use of technology will help children and adults focus and thrive in the age of digital distraction. Susan researches, writes, teaches and speaks on the current issues with technology, seeking solutions to the increasingly fast-paced and distractible nature of digital devices and social media.
