Bio

Susie Kroll is a graduate of the University of Washington. She earned a BS in Zoology with a Marine Emphasis and a BA in Speech Communication. While she enjoyed the sciences, she found her true passion lay in public speaking and communications. Most recently Susie has spent her time speaking locally and nationally about Teen Dating Violence, Domestic Violence, and prevention.

Her father is a retired NCIS agent and her mother is a retired accountant. She grew up in a household learning a healthy respect for the law and right and wrong. Susie, like her father, wanted to help people, but the idea of being in the line of fire as a federal agent wasn’t too appealing. After much searching she found herself volunteering with Providence Hospital's Intervention Center. She responded to her five local ERs as an advocate for victims of rape/sexual assault, and child sexual abuse. While with the Intervention center, she also took calls on their 24-Hour support hotline. During her time with the Intervention Center, she began to see hints of Domestic Violence abuse in some of the patients.

Susie needed to learn all she could about it in order to best advocate for the victims. She began the training with her county's local domestic violence organization. After completion of that training, she volunteered in their confidential shelter. She also worked with children that have been secondary victims of domestic violence via support groups. After that, she found that while working with victims was rewarding, she knew there had to be a way to stop people from ever making it to a support group, shelter, or ER in the first place.

This is when she got involved with Domestic Violence and Teen Dating Violence Education and Prevention. Susie earned her Master’s in Arts degree in Counseling Psychology in 2014. Currently, Susie is a therapist working with adults and children at a community mental health agency in her home state of Washington. She specializes in working with victims and survivors of Domestic Violence, Teen Dating Violence, Sexual Assault, Child Abuse and other traumas.

Susie is a speaker for The Elite Speakers Bureau with Denise Brown. The best way to end Domestic Violence is to educate our teens and tweens about Teen Dating Violence and Healthy Relationships.
