Resilience is an important resource that Suzanne (Suzie) Heather Graham has come to depend on, drawing upon it in every aspect of her life. She says that resilience has taught her to be flexible, so that she can meet the many demands she faces on a daily basis. 

". . . With resilience I am able to escape the confines of worry, blame, doubt and fear and focus myself on connecting with the ‘best self’ within myself and others.”

Suzanne is profiled in the premiere Northeast Ohio area edition of The Women's Book. Our theme is Resilience: Stories of Innovation & Inspiration.

Graham has worked for the city of Akron throughout her career, starting with her tenure with the city’s Recreation Bureau. Since that time she has supervised community centers, developed an award winning classical theatre program for children, and served as the coordinator of arts and children’s programs for the Office of the Mayor. 

Join us for The Women's Book's first Northeast Ohio Release Party presented by Key4Women on November 15th to get your copy of the new book, and connect with our profiled women leaders and local resources for women.
