I’m Suzie Soloviev, Narrative Consultant.
I’ve worked with major regional theaters, in educational settings from grammar school through graduate.

In my other life in biotech, I focus on creative solutions for an international team including workshop facilitation, event planning, and fundraising.
The stories we tell ourselves and each other change everything.

I love my clients!
MIISH G, Copywriter with a delightfully updated bio
“Suzie, I'm having so much fun with this! it feels like you're as invested in this as I am, and I'm loving every second.”
MEGAN C., Style Maven whose about page slays
“Your POV makes me want to take a whole new look at both pages and make them work harder for us in unique ways.”
ZACHARY G., Fulbright Fellow in Post-Conflict Redevelopment who sent in an amazing grant application
“I'm deeply impressed by the speed of your review and the depth as well! Mentioning the global migration crisis and moving outside the [local] context was a really good suggestion that I couldn't see because I'm so deep in it, thank you!”
LELA S., Artist whose revised bio rocks
“Love this! Just did the [MadLibs Worksheet]. Very helpful. Repeating and honing.”
BRITTNEY G., Doula with a newly launched website whose messaging is ON. POINT.
“Before working with Suzie I was completely overwhelmed with trying to build my own website. I had never done anything like it before, so not only was I lost in trying to navigate this whole new world of website building, I was also thoroughly not enjoying myself in the process. I was so excited to be starting a business, and I really did not want to be stuck in the same rut for months not making any progress on my website (which is exactly what happened before I connected with Suzie).
Suzie helped me to create a vision for my website. First, it was so helpful to have someone set attainable deadlines for me - I was able follow a timeline so I didn’t feel the need to have all my content in at once. Suzie was dedicated to sticking to the specific needs of my website I noted to her, but also took initiative when it came to creative aspects of website building that I felt I didn’t know enough about (i.e. formatting, picture placement, fonts, etc.). It was very important to me that my website was both aesthetically pleasing and user friendly (no complicated navigation pages for me!), and she nailed it.
She took the time to talk to me about not only what was necessary to create a comprehensive website, but also cared just as much as I did that my personality shone through, as well. Now I have a website better than I could have hoped for. I feel proud of the work that I put it, and I feel confident that someone who is looking at my website will get a good picture at who I am as a professional, and as a person. I am very grateful for her answering all my questions and soothing all my little website-building anxieties throughout the few months we worked together. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Suzie!”
JENNIFER G., Theatre Educator who is conquering the job quest with a new resume.
“Before working with Suzie I was applying to any job that looked like it even remotely fit something that I could see myself doing. I was still using the same cover letter and resume format I had after undergrad. I had only received 2 interviews that didn't go any further than a first interview. I was getting extremely discouraged and felt like all the work I had done to get where I currently am still wasn't good enough. Suzie helped me to narrow down to what I really wanted for my job.
She was incredibly helpful in giving me the guidance and resources to update my cover letter and resume to really show all that I am able to do. She also gave me the tools to move on from any job application. Now, I look forward to applying to jobs with a cleaner resume that shows my strengths and has buzz words that will appeal to possible employers. I'm excited to share my cover letter which now shows who I am and conveys the passion I have for teaching. I am going to go out with renewed confidence and find the perfect job for me.”

Still have Qs?
+ Theatre-infused whaaaaat?
I’m not just a business consultant. I’m a narrative consultant. I’m a storyteller, and I’m here to teach you to do the same. Theatre is, always was, and always will be the vehicle through which I understand story. There are thousands upon thousands of ways to generate material for stories. I’m proficient in playmaking, devised theatre, and Augusto Boal’s techniques. Each of these methods uses a combination of the individual’s personal experience, the group’s input, journaling, improvisation, and more to tease out what’s really going on.
+ But wait! We’re not actors!
The best thing about these techniques is that they’re not necessarily designed for professional actors. They’re made for community work. A lot of workers spend all day, every day, at their computers. Coding, writing, troubleshooting, working with customers. Theatre awakens different parts of the brain. It brings out aspects of your team you never dreamed of. It’s also a hell of a good time. Hello, new in-jokes and shared memories.
+ What will we actually do?
That depends on what you need. I start with a no-obligation 20 minute phone call to dig deep and find out what’s really hurting. Next, we plan your DAY OF LEGEND. You have exclusive access to me, my brain, and years of training. I am excited to work with you one on one OR with a small group.
+ So, what do I get at the end of the day?
YOU’LL WALK AWAY WITH: Your Story Assessment, which includes:
- summary of how you worked today
- how you/your team work best
- the language you and your team will use moving forward.
- Next steps!
+ Looking for something different?
...a bigger report? A longer record? A B Side? Plain old editing help? We can add that on too. Ala carte options include...
- TEDx talk development (outline, practice, etc.)
- Multi-day internal events based on your challenges and goals
- Active conflict resolution scenarios
- Crafting more engaging meetings
- Overseeing the creation of a company record book
- Assessment of your current marketing and promotional tools as it aligns to what we uncover together
- Hourly Consulting
+ I don’t have a business or organization. Can we work together?
Absolutely. I’ve worked with personal brands and blogs of all kinds. We can work on mission statements, website copy, classes, resumes… whatever you like , once we find the core of your story. I also offer One-on-One Executive Coaching. Email me, and we’ll figure out just what you’re missing.
+ What makes Sacred Record right for me?
With formal training and experience in contemporary education best practices, I’m able to assess learning styles and make recommendations about how your team works best. My theatre-infused techniques make for engaging working meetings, satisfying experiences, tangible products for your employees to look back on, and shared memories. If being fully present is how you roll, you will LOVE our work together.
