About Suzanne

Originally from Upstate and Central New York, Suzanne was educated in the Jesuit Tradition at Le Moyne College, where she received Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Marketing, and later earned the degree of Master of Business Administration. A Jesuit education is more than just textbooks and classrooms – it’s a way of teaching and learning that enriches every part of a student’s life on campus and beyond. Suzanne has strived to embody the characteristics consistent with the Jesuit ideals including pursuit of knowledge, a focus on personal integrity, ethical behavior and commitment to excellence.

Suzanne is well prepared to help you achieve your employment goals, having spent more than 25 years in sales and customer service driven industries, where she developed a passion for helping others and creating close client relationships. After relocating to the Gulf Coast of Florida, Suzanne decided she needed to make a change. She had the desire to do something that changed people’s lives, and required more people interaction. The transition to Patrice & Associates was a natural progression. Suzanne’s ability to provide leadership and direction to candidates and clients alike makes her a strong recruiter.

Suzanne looks forward to continuing to coach and mentor people as they grow and work toward meeting their career goals, building relationships with both her clients and candidates, and striving to make the perfect match for both parties involved.

Suzanne lives in Safety Harbor, FL – home of the historic Espiritu Santo Springs, or “Springs of the Holy Spirit”, a natural mineral spring. Its waters were given this name in 1539 by the Spanish explorer Hernando de Soto, who was supposedly searching for the mythical “Fountain of Youth”.

  • I must say at first I was a little skeptical on what Stephanie was doing with my resume but now after seeing the results I am so glad listened instead of reacting. I will definitely continue with this company and I've already started to recommend Stephanie and what she can and is more than willing to do for each individual.

  • During my 20+ years career in hospitality I had the opportunity to work either directly or indirectly with several recruiting firms and individuals. My most recent job search lead me to Bruce Leininger with Patrice and Associates. Bruce is one of those rare individuals who combines needs of the employer with knowledge and skills of the job seeker. He sees both perspectives, analyses where there is common ground between employer’s culture and applicant’s strengths, then delivers a candid assessment to both parties. Bruce was relentless in pursuit of job opportunities and in finding the “right fit” for my career profile. EVERYTHING that Bruce said and promised in his introduction to me was delivered, and even MORE! Most importantly I truly felt that Bruce was genuine, understanding and caring in regards to my specific needs and goals. As far as I am concerned when it comes to recruiters, there is Bruce and then there’s everyone else.
