Dr. Suzy Thompson

Passionate. Edgy. Relatable. Funny. These are just a few adjectives that describe Suzy no matter which hat (Mom, Professor, Counselor, Guide, Mentor, Life-Coach, Educational Psychologist, Wife) that she’s wearing. Suzy grew-up a Third Culture kid with her primary years being spent in both Saudi Arabia and America.  Suzy’s obtained a Bachelor’s in Psychology and then progressed onto Texas A&M University where she earned both her Masters & Doctorate in Educational Psychology with an emphasis on Intelligence, Creativity, & Giftedness.

Since 2004, Suzy has spoken at a number of State, National, and International Conferences regarding her research in the fields of giftedness and creativity. She has also been recognized by her colleagues and college students in the “Who’s Who Amongst College Professors” several years in a row.

Suzy’s vitae also includes authoring “Understanding Giftedness: A Practical Guide for Parents,” being a college professor (2004-2019), obtaining her Christ-based Counseling and Life-Coaching Certificates from the National Association of Christ-based Counselors in Dallas, Texas, and then opening her company Understanding Giftedness, LLC in Cedar Park, Tx where she counseled gifted/talented youth and did Christ-based Counseling from 2008 – 2016. 

Dr. Suz uses her expertise as a qualitative researcher, Life-Coach, and gift of teaching to explain a variety of topics about intelligence and creativity to her audiences in a format that is informative, practical, humorous, and fun. Her audience will leave the presentation with a renewed sense of understanding and great ideas to implement at home with their gifted, talented, and/or creative children.
