Focal Pointe was founded based on an intense passion to support individuals and organizations see their dreams become reality.

All too often we find ourselves either dreaming of what could be, regretting what isn’t  or too busy “living” to allow us to reach for more. The result: a mediocre sense of fulfillment, regret around all you had hoped to achieve, the difference you wanted to make, and the legacy you hoped to leave behind.

We prioritize the value in creating a clear vision of what you are trying to achieve.
We are committed towards helping you create a strategy to get there.

Focal Pointe works with you to customize the right program to meet your needs. We value you and the opportunity to work together. Your vision is personal, and your mission is great – at Focal Pointe we measure our success on yours.

Working with a diverse team of certified coaches, business consultants and experienced professionals, Focal Pointe will find the right person or team to support you. With over 25 years of combined expertise in executive level to mid-level leadership, sales, marketing and commercialization strategies, roles in the Healthcare, Medical Device, Finance, STEM, military and entrepreneurial fields, Focal Pointe is able to understand you, your business and embrace your challenges on a personal level. From our years of first-hand experience combined with rigorous and continual training and professional development, our team at Focal Pointe connects experience, current trends and methodologies and strong leadership to customize strategies and programs for you and your organization.

Sue brings over 25 years of corporate and military experience developing leaders, building teams, launching medical device products and businesses. She has done this by repeatedly creating a clear vision, establishing an achievable plan and executing.  As a leader, Sue understands the value of developing people for growth and productivity. Leadership starts with how you lead yourself and Sue is passionate about taking personal accountability and ownership for your development and successful career navigation.

Sue holds a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Mathematics from the University of Massachusetts and a Masters of Education in Human Resources and Organizational Change from Boston University. She is an iPEC Certified Professional Coach and a Certified Energy Leadership™ Index Master Practitioner. Additionally, Sue has worked extensively with Myers Briggs™, DISC™ and Situational Leadership™ models.

Spending her professional career serving as an officer in the United States Army and subsequently in Fortune 500 companies to early-stage medical device start-ups, Sue’s diverse experience in Sales, Marketing and Product Development provides her with an appreciation and understanding from multiple perspectives, roles and responsibilities.

When not conducting workshops, consulting on business strategy or coaching high performing executives, you will find Sue thoroughly engaged in cheering for her three teenagers at soccer tournaments and track meets, playing a good game of Gin Rummy with her husband of 20 years, or hopping into an occasional Tough Mudder™ for the exercise and fun of it!

“We initially engaged Sue for a leadership assessment with the intent to build a stronger, more focused leadership team. We thought, much like other leadership assessments we researched, this would be one possibly two workshops and we would then be on our own. After one meeting, we realized what Sue could bring to the organization, and have now engaged her numerous times with ongoing plans for additional workshops and individual coaching.

Sue’s passion is contagious, her ability to step in and make herself part of the company, truly get to know the mission, values and staff, is a gift. She has a clear vision of business standards of practice paired with deep compassion for individuals and the ability to draw out the best. She brings focus, energy and joy to her work, you can’t help but feel energized when working with Sue.”
