International speaker and author Susan Fitzell, M.Ed., CSP, has decades of experience working with education and business communities to maximize human potential in the learning & growth space.

Susan’s neurodivergence was diagnosed the same day as one of her children. The doctor said, “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.” She understands dyslexia, ADHD, and central auditory processing disorder firsthand. She also identifies with many characteristics of autistic adults.

She is a recognized authority in the learning and collaboration space. She can problem-solve work-related matters involving various neurodiverse scenarios to bring out the best in people and teams.

Susan’s ‘lived experience’ as a neurodivergent, combined with her three-plus decades in the field of learning disabilities and neurodiversity, uniquely qualifies her as an expert in this field. Because she understands the struggles of someone whose brain is wired differently, she is passionate about creating a world that empowers and values neurodivergent talent.
