Susie Vaughan is a leader with a passion to see others thrive.

For the last 30 years Susie has served in a variety of public education roles; beginning as a special education teacher and finishing her career as a successful campus administrator. In 2015, Susie retired after 14 years as a principal in Plano, Texas.  Her career in public education was devoted to excellence in teaching and learning and she achieved this through building relationships in order to build capacity.

Susie first saw the power of coaching as a participant in a year long leadership development program. In response to her own experience with a coach and seeing its’ positive impact on others, she became passionate about coaching as a way to achieve lasting change. Susie holds a Professional Coach Certification (PCC) through the International Coach Federation (ICF).  Susie believes all effective leaders must be learners; so she continues to find ways to “grow” herself. She does this through ongoing research related to coaching and leadership. 

In addition to coaching leaders Susie regularly facilitates professional development opportunities for leaders, leadership teams, managers and administrators.
