Learn about Susan

Susan Drucker Hunsaker is an entrepreneur and certified executive coach who learned the fundamentals of business from both a Fortune 500 company and through her own experience as an entrepreneur. Susan coaches business leaders and owners to develop their organizations into thriving, sustainable practices. Her mission is to help business leaders and entrepreneurs find the right tools and levers to make their business more enjoyable and successful.

Susan has lived and breathed the highs and lows of business ownership as a hospitality entrepreneur and restaurateur. She knows that moving every percentage point, training every new hire and exceeding customer expectations calls on a strong inner game. In an industry where the failure rate is 80% in the first 5 years, she and her husband have run a thriving, profitable restaurant & events business for more than 8 years.

As a founding stylist with Stella and Dot she led a top sales team and was awarded “The Heart of Leadership Award”. When the opportunity came to test a trunk show channel for Williams-Sonoma’s Mark and Graham, she jumped at the chance. This endeavor involved literally writing the playbook for a brand new sales channel. She and her team met proof of concept metrics for the year in under 9 months.

Susan holds a B.A. in Studio Arts from Loyola Marymount University, a Masters in Educational Technology from the University of San Francisco, a Certificate in Executive Coaching from the Center for Executive Coaching, and an Accredited Coach Credential from the International Coach Federation.

Learn about Pam

Pamela Coburn-Litvak, PhD CEC HLC

Pamela Coburn-Litvak is a neuroscientist, author, speaker, and certified executive coach (CEC). Pam helps executives and organizations reduce their stress load in terms of overwhelm, time and priorities management, disorganization, and personnel issues like conflict and team building. Drawing on 25 years of research and teaching the principles of stress management and resilience, Pam’s mission is to help her clients prevent burnout and promote well-being.

While getting her PhD in neuroscience, Pam learned that the stress we face in life often leaves us vulnerable to clinical issues like anxiety and depression, as well as increasing our risk of heart attack and stroke. And she realized something else: a lot of our stress happens at work. Over 80% of U.S. workers report having significant workplace stress, and U.S. companies spend $300 billion each year on stress-related issues like low productivity and absenteeism. We spend another $200 billion in the United States alone on health issues like migraines, ulcers, and high blood pressure.

So, Pam now teaches and coaches in university classrooms, public seminars, and to business leaders. She has an Accredited Coach Credential from the International Coach Federation, holds a specialty certification for Healthcare Leadership Coaching (HLC), and has developed a well-being coaching program for clinicians. Pam’s research has been published in scientific journals like Neuroscience and Neurobiology of Learning and Behavior. Her latest book on stress, depression, and anxiety, Leaving the Shadowland, is also currently available.
