Meet the minds behind Prepare To Launch U

Susan Rietano Davey
Co-Founder

Susan began her career in Fortune 50 Tech where she rapidly moved up the ranks from producer to manager to staff roles, and earned many top performance honors. After taking a career break to care for her children, she became a pioneer for the flexible workspace as a partner in a consulting and recruiting firm, Flexible Resources, Inc. Later, she ran a robust executive coaching practice. 

 

Kelley Biskupiak

Co-Founder

Kelley began her career in Education as a teacher, then later in Administration and Curriculum Development, providing educational consulting services to urban school systems. After taking a career break to raise her children, she opened a thriving practice as a CTI-trained certified Co-Active coach. 

 

 

Susan and Kelley met while speaking at a women’s conference in 2016. Immediately, they felt a connection and knew that they could better help more women if they teamed up. So, the two joined forces first to share clients, then to run workshops, and, ultimately, to create the learning company Prepare to Launch U that provides instruction, inspiration, and community to women navigating work-life transitions along the continuum of life. Together, they have helped launch thousands of women of women globally. 

"Prepare To Launch U's tools and techniques helped me successfully return to work and create synergy in my home & work life. My confidence has been rekindled and I am forever grateful. Knowing, trusting, and believing in my professional "worth" has been life changing."
