She began flying for United Airlines in 1978

Suz, the daughter of a diplomat, was born in Izmir, Turkey where she lived for three years. She lived in Korea and Thailand as well before returning home to the US with her family. She has traveled all over the United States too, and has called many parts of this country ‘home.’ Her many airplane rides as a child convinced her she must one day, become a stewardess. Suz was a flight attendant for thirteen of her twenty-five years with UAL. She began penning FlightLog with the help of the Naperville Writer’s Group outside of Chicago. There, she published in their annual pamphlet, had a humor piece printed in an online magazine and contributed many articles to local newspapers. At the time of publication, she is busy working on FlightLog II.

Away from the keyboard Suz loves yoga, reading, cooking, listening to music and playing her guitar. She still enjoys mapping out travel itineraries to faraway places she’s never seen as well as planning return trips to her favorite spots.

She currently lives in Southern California and has two grown children. Today, she’s in healthcare, where she’s worked since 2014. Suz was the ‘baby’ of her flight attendant classes, then the ‘senior’ student in her nursing classes. She’s eager to write that story as well: a novice baby-boomer RN begins her dream career as a travel nurse – just as a pandemic breaks out!
