My Story:


In 2003 I earned my Associates Degree at Alan Hancock College and my Bachelors of Science in Health and Wellness with Kaplan University, graduating Summa Cum Laude, in 2011.  I was on the Dean’s Honors List once and the President’s Honors List six times while attending school there.  

I have donated my time teaching a curriculum I created called “Beingwhole” to adult cancer survivors at the Mission Hope Cancer Center, Marion Regional Medical Center in Santa Maria, CA and to children at the Lompoc and Santa Maria Boys and Girls Club.  I taught meditation classes at the Dick DeWees Senior Center, Lompoc, CA.  In fact, I continue to host that class from my home to some of the same students.  

While my style is authentic, empathic, intuitive and nurturing, my mission is to empower, enhance and inspire others to live a whole life comprised of mental, physical, spiritual, social and emotional health and well being.  


I would be honored to "hold the light" for you on your quest for growth, expansion and development.


With Love and Light, 

Susan Hurst



Some of my favs! Feel the Love!


When I started meeting with Susan, I did not know anything about

Coaching. I was seeking answers and help to get through an unmanageable situation in life. From the very beginning starting with meditation, Susan helped me focus on how I could achieve my goal. She asked questions that led me to solid decisions. Susan is sensitive and supportive and provided me with various tools to help as I encountered each new day. I found that Susan is an awesome Life Coach filled with knowledge and expertise. She encouraged me in every step that I have taken and believes in me. My life would not be the same if I had not met Susan. I remember her saying: “This is a journey. Trust yourself”.

 Thank you, Susan!


Working with Susan has been a great experience!! I have deeply connected with her and gained much powerful insight that will help me face my many life challenges! She is an amazing life coach! 


I had met Susan over 5 years ago when she instructed a of group of us in  Basic Meditation at the Senior Center in town.  Wow, it's unbelievable how much I've grown over the years.  I have learned so much through her guidance and technique to see life in a different light.  Whether it's looking inside myself or understanding the way others tick, the knowledge I've gained is overwhelming.  Mindfulness, Guided meditation, drum circles, crystals, flame gazing, Chakra awareness the list goes on and on.  Susan's approach to mediation and finding one's self has expanded my horizons and undoubtedly made me a better human being.  Thanks Susan.


When I first started working with Susan, my goal was to find the strength to remove myself from a toxic situation. What I received was so much more. Not only did she help with that particular situation, Susan delved deeper into how I arrived in the situation and why I felt trapped and unable to extract myself. In doing so, Susan helped me find a set of tools I can use in every aspect of my life to make decisions from a grounded place of strength instead of guilt and obligation.

During each session, Susan was fully present and ready and willing to discuss any issue or topic I wanted to work on that particular day. She was also open to sharing her personal experiences when pertinent to the issue I had at hand which strengthened my connection to her and offered new possible solutions for me. Further, Susan supplied me with a variety of other resources to use between our sessions to support our work; resources I can use daily to continue to empower myself and work toward a whole life well-being.

Although my process continues, I can now move forward in my life using my set of tools to make healthy decisions for myself and find balance in my life. Thank you, Susan!


It is a great pleasure to recommend Susan as a life coach. Her commitment to my goal inspired me to dig deeper into my own thought processes that were holding me back and the revelations I experienced were remarkable.  Her genuine concern in helping me achieve my goal boosted my confidence to continue pursuing it even when I felt it was too difficult.  Her flexibility and friendly professionalism made our coaching sessions productive and memorable and I look forward to working with her again.  


Susan has a very positive, caring and calming manner about her. It was gratifying to look at my life holistically and then to focus on the areas that I really wanted to improve. I found our sessions to be a pleasurable experience that provided positive reinforcement that helped me identify with the changes I wanted to make. Susan has enabled me to make these changes and has left me with some valuable tools. I will be forever grateful.


I've known Susan for 6 years. She is one of the most positive people I have ever known. She always has something good to say no matter what the situation. I always feel good after talking with her. She rates five stars out of five with me


Just a quick note of thanks...

Because of your knowledge and patience, I am meditating almost every day! I find it to be the best stress reliever and I want you to know how proud I am of myself and how grateful I am for you!  Thank you for your leadership.

With a peaceful heart.



Thank you so much for being the wonderful teacher, seeker and trainer that you are.

I have learned so much from our monthly meditation meetings.  The exercises that you

bring and the experiences you provide have been motivational, inspiration, challenging, fun and insightful.  I have learned much about my own thoughts, strengths and frailties and how to get in touch with my inner thoughts.


Your patience, leadership, vast knowledge of people, growth, the spirit and inner wisdoms, have given me opportunities to get in touch with thoughts, fears and wishes deep inside myself.  This is not easy and I appreciate the atmosphere and encouragement you provide such that our personal spirituality is able to surface and be shared in a safe and positive atmosphere.


I can’t thank you enough for the opportunities you have provided, the encouraging environment in which we work

as both individuals and a small group. 

With love and appreciation!



 I assumed the sessions would be like the ones I had experienced from friends taking courses in life coaching....setting goals, a sense that I had best attain the goals,  something I have never been good at.  


Susan's approach was refreshing.  I felt as if she held out her hand as an offer to travel on a path of discovery and from that discovery came a flicker of light that I could follow either with her help in the next session or even on my own.  She had a way to pull away the "wool" so to speak.   Her tools allowed me to see obstacles,  where they came from and what they needed from me.  On more than a few occasions I felt  a deep shift with in my conciousness.  From these shifts, changes have taken place, of which I am grateful.  


Susan has a unique skill

and gift.


Thank you Susan for the invitation.



coaching style is both impressively professional, yet refreshingly personable.


On one hand, Susan is able to wield a variety of expert level coaching techniques during our time together. These techniques have made it possible for me to make breakthroughs in my life and grow in my own personal development. 


On the other hand, Susan is enjoyably relational in her approach, always keeping the environment relaxed, safe and fun. I felt very comfortable working with Susan and opening up to her in a very short amount of time, which made our work together that much more powerful.

It's a privilege to recommend Susan to others!"

 I finally lived happily ever after. Not because my life is  perfect and I don’t struggle with adversity like everyone else,  but instead I’ve learned to navigate crisis with  confidence and resilience.  I am now able to see  challenges as opportunities for growth and evolution and I am going to be happy inspite of them, without  becoming stuck, traumatized or devastated.
