After receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education, Susie taught fifth and first grade before becoming a stay-at-home mom to her now three children. When her children were young she began work toward a Master of Arts in Professional Counseling. It was during this time that she created the website DiddleDots. She shared one tip a day to help ease the craziness of parenting. As time passed, she turned DiddleDots into a book and she had it published in 2011.
