Founder Bio

Susan Shayna Scribner is a charismatic public speaker and seminar leader with a genuine passion for promoting civility, respect and personal responsibility—age-old wisdom which is guaranteed to lead us to success, but often forgotten in today’s high-tech, fast-paced world. She is committed to creating environments where people help others and know how to Just Do What’s Right.

Working with business professionals and college students for many years, she has trained and motivated numerous groups and individuals to enhance their personal presentation and communication skills and to hone their skills of proper social conduct and dining etiquette—key elements for personal and professional success.

A highly experienced presenter and well-trained educator, Dr. Scribner has taught at American University in Washington, D.C. and at Washington University in St. Louis. 

Susan S. Scribner

Known as “The Etiquette Doc”, Dr. Scribner has received rave reviews for her motivational style.  Her seminar entitled What Happened To My Dinner Roll? that focuses on social manners and dining etiquette has proven to be very popular and effective with business professionals and college students.  Participants benefit by learning manners and enhancing their own presentation style. As an added bonus, attendees report that they leave the class with elevated confidence.  

Dr. Scribner’s experience includes serving as a college vice president, heading the Office of College Relations, where she was responsible for media and public relations, special events and publications, marketing and internal and external communications of the college. Prior to this, Susan served as an account manager at an international public relations/communications firm. Prior to moving to St. Louis in 1991, Dr. Scribner spent 16 years in Washington, D.C.  where she held the positions of Vice President for Public Affairs for the National Center for Educational Competitiveness, National Director of the 1990 National Red Ribbon Campaign for Drug Free America, and served a Presidential Administration as Director of Public Affairs for several Presidential and Secretarial initiatives.  She was also Television Producer and Director of Media Relations for the United States Chamber of Commerce and an adjunct professor at American University. Dr. Scribner initially moved to Washington, D.C. in 1975 from Boston, Massachusetts to accept the position of National Training Director for the Council for Exceptional Children.

She has been an active national advocate for legislation to improve public education services for handicapped children, as well as to enhance community resources for all young people.  Concerned with a rapidly changing social structure in the 70s, and limited alternatives and resources for children with increasing amounts of spare and unsupervised time, Dr. Scribner in 1978 created "It's A Small World."  This news service, for and by children, was designed to offer young people an opportunity to become more involved in the world around and affecting them, to formulate and express their own opinions about the issues shaping their lives, to receive acknowledgment and recognition, and to learn the skills of writing, communication and journalism.  The feature has received awards and been recognized nationally.

Dr. Scribner is the recipient of the Glamour magazine award for Outstanding Young Working Women of the Year, the Metropolitan Area Mass Media Award of the American Association of University Women, Woman of the Year by the Arlington (Virginia) Jaycees, and she is featured in Outstanding Young Working Women of America and Who's Who in American Education and Cambridge Who's Who Among Executive and Professional Women.  She has been the subject of television features and newspaper articles

Susan Scribner received her doctorate degree in Educational Management and Organizational Development from the University of Massachusetts/Amherst, her master's degree in Special Education also from UMASS/Amherst. She earned her bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from the University of Vermont.

In her spare time, Susan enjoys reading, writing children’s books, bicycling and adding to her Wise Monkeys collection. Susan and her husband, David, live in St. Louis with their family of three Westies and one Wheaten Terrier.
