About This Peacemaker

Suzanne Gochenouer - color - 350

Suzanne dreamed of being an artist. While in high school, she took art courses, including the Art Instruction Schools commercial art course. Unfortunately, many artists die impoverished, and her parents strongly suggested she find a backup occupation. Just until she became famous, of course.

To make them happy, she worked in retail for a while, then at her career military/National Guard father’s urging, joined the U.S. Air Force. She figured she would learn a trade she could use the rest of her life, make enough money to buy land in the mountains, and have happy, exciting adventures traveling the world.

To that end, she entered the field of electronics, which had just opened to women. Well, she got exciting adventures traveling around the places her assignments took her, and she got a trade she used for over twenty years. However, she never did get that land in the mountains. (And she regrettably never created peace in the world with her military service or with her next career).

After five years in the Air Force, Suzanne spent twenty years with a large aerospace company working on classified government contracts, exercising the left side of her brain until it ached. Literally. Actually, the pain came from a blow to the head and set her on a new path in life.

In a quest for relief from daily migraines, Suzanne researched many forms of alternative healing. She endured two complete series of Rolfing, tried yoga, but finally found the answer in massage, Reiki, and aromatherapy.

Suzanne’s latest co-authored book is 365 Days of Angel Prayers.  She also shared stories in The Gratitude Book Project: Celebrating 365 Days of Gratitude, 2012 Edition, the 2013 Edition, and the 2014 Edition, and the My Favorite Summertime Memory edition. [The co-authors of all the Gratitude Book Project® series proudly donate the proceeds from sales to the following charities: Feeding America; Women for Women International; American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (A.S.P.C.A.)]

Suzanne is a Peacemaker, a Reiki Master/Teacher and uses aromatherapy with her clients. She teaches energy classes, writes, edits, reads far too much and too late at night, and listens to people’s dreams and fears to help them be who they are meant to be. It’s been too long since she picked up a paintbrush for anything other than repainting a wall. But she intends to work painting art into her life again soon.
