On her 7th birthday her mother gave her her first tarot deck. Divination and Magic are Susan's passions and she has dedicated her life to magical and healing practices. Along the way, Susan earned a degree in Psychology with an emphasis on Biology, helping to facilitate her natural counseling, psychic, and healing abilities.
