Suzette Margolis, CT, MBA
Suzette Margolis is the Founder of Peace Speaks and the liveBrilliance Program established to bring mindfulness programs to those wanting to reduce stress and enhance their life’s work and genuine spirit. She completed the Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Intenstive Training with Jon Kabat Zinn, PhD from the University of Massachusetts Medical Center, the University of Pennsylvania Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine Mindfulness Foundation Program under Michael Baime, MD and Penn’s Teacher Practicum with Karen Bowles, MD.
Her career path has been guided by intrigue about brain functionality and human behavior. Suzette’s services as a consultant, facilitator and educator are coveted as she takes a holistic approach to change, understanding that sometimes transformation involves cognitive mindset shifts and relief of stressors not just adjustments to processes and behavior. In education, she has served the Philadelphia School District and neighboring districts, Radnor School District, The Woods School, Montgomery County Training and Employment, various Montessori schools and Rosemont College as an Adjunct Professor. On the corporate side, she gained in-depth experience working with Hewlett Packard, Kodak, Xerox and others. Her professional practice organically grew to include Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR) since she is a veteran meditation practitioner. Suzette believes that the pragmatic approaches to mindfulness at the UMass, University of Pennsylvania, Jefferson, UCLA and other innovative schools are just the beginning of our transcendence to richer mental acuity and peace as humans. She’s proud to play a tiny part in it.
She has presented educational sessions to groups of 1-2,000 in-house and through business associations, schools districts and municipalities. In 2016 she served as curator of liveBrilliance, the Philadelphia region’s premier mindfulness conference at Villanova University.
