Susan Yurkewicz is the Founder and Principal of Harbor Lily Creative.
Susan has the ability to draw from a unique composite of living experience filled with a wide array of characters and personalities. Having been born as the middle child of 12 children, served in the United States Navy, (magazine/Communication experience-radio?) she devoted 20 years to her marriage and seven children before being called to further expand her understanding and working knowledge of Communication (communicating). She most recently added to her cadre of real-life stories by delving back into the role of student in a brick and mortar University to receive her Bachelor’s degree in Communication, graduating suma cum laude with a 3.9 gpa. She even made Dean’s list- last four or five (?) consecutive semesters- while being a wife, mother of seven, and grandmother. Susan validated her initial view of broadcasting as an important part of Communication, and has since learned the value and application of strategic social media integration. She is passionate about the wisdom and finesse of interpersonal communication. Her desire to help others “keep the door of Communication open” while bringing their talents to bear fruit for the good of humanity comes with a fresh perspective of living amongst having been surrounded by the current generation and vigor of youth.
Susan is also the author of TRIUMPH: A Story of Finding Hope In A Love That Knows No Bounds, a book that tells the story of the journey of life with John Michael, her seventh child, who only lived outside the womb for 48 hours. The experience taught her and her husband Steve how to find hope and “live in the moment” while embracing the GIFTS from God of beauty, strength and new perspectives for HIS purpose and desired length of time.
