Susan Yurkewicz is the Principal of Harbor Lily Creative, an author, and mom of seven.


Susan is passionate about creating and facilitating unique pathways that “keep the door of communication open” between people in a broad array of relationships and applications. Her personal mission is to help others be open to God’s message. One such message is that the world is in desperate need of beauty -- a beauty that flourishes when each individual courageously shares their unique gifts and talents with others. A gift given solely to them for the good of our world.


Her self-published book, TRIUMPH: A Story of Finding Hope In A Love That Knows No Bounds, about her seventh son John Michael, who given an adverse prenatal diagnosis, transformed many lives in his brief time on earth has been made available to purchase HERE.


Susan draws creative inspiration from a unique composite of lived experiences. Born as the middle child of 12, she served in the United States Navy and worked at various media (print/broadcast) outlets early in her career. After concentrating over two decades to raising her seven children with her husband Steve, she felt called to expand her understanding and working knowledge of communication. This led her to take the plunge and delve back into the role of student to earn her Bachelor’s Degree in Communication from Mercyhurst University in 2019.  


Susan lives in Erie, Pa-- with her husband, Steve, a house full of kids, goldfish, and a dog named Millie. To follow Susan, subscribe below, and on Facebook at
