Christina: What is your SwagHer? What makes Susan, Susan?

Susan: My passion and purpose make me who I am.

Christina: Why did you start Wrapped in My Roots?

Susan: After having my daughter, I started Wrapped in My Roots during the pandemic. My scarves kept me sane and stylish, and I wanted to share that experience with others too. I wanted them to express themselves with our accessories while being their authentic self.

Christina: What is your favorite hair accessory, and why?

Susan: My favorite hair accessory is my black velvet head wrap, which started my hair accessory business. I wore it while I brought my daughter into the world, so as my daughter Nia came into existence, so did my business.

Christina: You have a strong background in healthcare and tech. What inspired you to pursue entrepreneurship instead of staying in the field?

Susan: I was inspired to start my entrepreneurial journey through my family. My children were the inspiration behind my businesses. I wanted to build generational wealth and leave a legacy for them. In addition, my strong background in healthcare and tech has helped me to solve issues and help my community. For instance, I created Positively Plugged from that knowledge, a tech company for business owners that promotes the health and wellness of business owners.

Christina: What is one word your friends would use to describe you and why?

Susan: Stubborn. I am a hopeful person that never gives up, no matter how bad the situation seems. I am an overcomer and will always speak positive words.

Christina: Tell us about your maternity clothing line, Comfortem. Where can readers go to purchase? 

Susan: I officially launched Comfortem in 2022. Our family-centered approach to providing the best maternity line started after purchasing outfits that ripped after the first wash. I wanted to offer mothers comfortable, affordable, and long-lasting clothing. Our maternity nursing, pajamas, and loungewear sets are super-soft, versatile, and available in burgundy and black in XS-XXL sizes. Mothers can wear our maternity sets at any stage of the motherhood journey. Comfortem is a unique experience because it has allowed me to be part of other people’s motherhood journey, and I am honored to be part of it. Our maternity sets are available on our website (https://www.comfortem.com) and Etsy (https://www.comfortemshop.etsy.com)

Christina: How do you practice self-care?

Susan: I practice self-care by unplugging from life’s distractions and listening to my body. I love getting massages, listening to music, and having quiet time.

Christina: Is there anything else you would like to share?

Susan: A hidden talent that I discovered is that I am a phenomenal speaker. I want to challenge everyone to try new things, even if it scares you! Find yourself and what you enjoy doing. Live your life with no regrets. Take that leap!
