Susán Hoemke, CLC
Susán Hoemke is a social activist, speaker, Certified Life Coach (CLC),
program creator of IMAP and author of Healing Scarred Hearts: A
Family’s Story of Addiction, Loss, and Finding Light.
As a wife and mother of four, her life took an unexpected turn in the form of her son Hayden’s addiction and other subsequent family tragedies that taught her the hard way about Substance Use Disorder and mental health challenges. Hoemke lost her son to heroin overdose in 2014 and now, she hopes to not only bring awareness and education to Substance Use Disorder/addiction but also to offer hope and healing after loss.
Susán’s national media interviews, speaking engagements, and serving as a panelist on several forums allows her to help many others living in a crisis find ways to cope and deal with crucial situations. Hoemke has also created the curriculum “IMAP (I Make a Plan): Mapping the Way to Be Drug Free” for parents, kids and educators. IMAP is a simple to use Power Point drug education program that will help kids navigate life with a better chance of a success and reaching goals. IMAP is designed to mimic planning for a road trip and bridges healthy conversation between teachers, parents and kids. The IMAP subscription can be
