Susan Wroble started writing for the local newspaper in high school. As an electrical engineer, her jobs soon changed from straight engineering to technical writing, on subjects ranging from electro-magnetic storms in the skies to submarine sonar systems in the seas. Now, she lives in Denver with her husband, their two children, and their therapy dogs. She loves all nonfiction, but her favorite topic is the effect animals have on the brain and body.

Presentation Description:

All presentations are tailored to the interests and needs of your age groups(s). 

Skype visits (20-30 minutes) are free and are a brief presentation followed by Q&A.

For visits in Colorado, I am typically accompanied by one of our therapy dogs! 

I am happy to present to classes of special needs students. 


1) Training the brain to be creative (maintaining a new habit for a month can change the brain!),

2) How to organize your thoughts and resources,

3) How animals affect the brain by lowering stress markers, and

4) The difference between service animals, therapy animals, and emotional support animals, and the laws pertaining to each of these groups.
