Suzanne Burns of BeCharityWise empowers ministry leaders like you to achieve greater levels of transformation in the lives they touch. The secret of her effectiveness? A broad range of personal and professional experience and education.

Suzanne has over 20 years’ experience in nonprofit ministry to communities in need. Most recently, in 2012, she led a small, dedicated crew in founding a maternity home (complete with on-site education and social enterprise job-training programs) for mothers in critical situations. 

Once faced with a critical situation herself, Suzanne knows what your ministry clients face—and what will and will not help them.

Now equipped with a Master of Science in Marriage and Family Studies, Suzanne is also a Certified Family Trauma Professional. She has helped hundreds of ministry leaders understand the complex issues of trauma, poverty and addiction. Now they are serving their communities more effectively than ever before.
