About Susan McCorkindale
Susan McCorkindale is a motivational TEDx Speaker, author of two amazon bestselling memoirs, and host of the online series, “Flaws Are the New Black.”
Her first book, Confessions of a Counterfeit Farm Girl, chronicles her move – with her husband and two sons – from suburban New Jersey to a 500-acre beef cattle farm in the wilds of Virginia. Her follow-up, 500 Acres and No Place to Hide: More Confessions of a Counterfeit Farm Girl, is both heartbreaking and side-splittingly funny as our favorite fake farm girl navigates her husband’s very real cancer diagnosis.
A popular keynote speaker known for her high-energy, humorous, and captivating presentations, Susan speaks frequently on the topics of resilience, grief, and the role of humor in helping people bounce back and stay back.
