About Us

Susie Harder

M.A., CCC-SLP

Mom. Speech-Language Pathologist. Cheerleader of all kids. Creator of Junior Authors Program.

At home, Susie spends her time building forts, playing chase, and having kitchen dance parties with her two kids and fun-loving husband. When Susie goes to work, she is a Speech-Language Pathologist who loves helping children who stutter. She teaches kids how to be confident and brave, even if they’re feeling shy or unsure. Susie has an endless supply of smiles, wants every child to feel heard, and gives great high-fives.  Susie grew up in Tollhouse, CA and is currently building this project to help local children affected by the Creek Fire.
