Hi, I’m Suzanne Barnes. Mom of 3, wife, former pro athlete and I’ve been building my online wellness business for nearly 2 years – I’m here to help us mamas be the best version of ourselves, so we can experience more happiness in our life.
I grew up in a small agricultural town. I attended the University of Nevada, Reno on a volleyball scholarship. After graduating, I moved to Southern California, where I attended MUD Make-up Designory and worked as a make-up artist.
I also teamed up with my best friend to form “team gorgeous” ..( the fans gave us this name) on the AVP, a professional beach volleyball tour.
Being a mom to three busy children and wife to a PGA tour professional who travels for weeks at a time, I find that I am constantly juggling my time to try to find balance at home as a mom and wife and at the same time taking care of myself.
I am passionate about my family, living a healthy lifestyle (nutrition and being active), skincare and beauty, and volunteering my time at my children’s school and fundraising ventures benefitting children.
I have always loved being in the kitchen. Growing up in a farming community, I appreciate freshly grown produce. I try to provide healthy cooked meals for my family and like sharing recipes and ideas.
My husband’s profession as a PGA tour pro requires him to travel and be away from the family quite often. I try to travel with him to some tournaments, but having two children in school doesn’t give us much opportunity to do that. I am beyond proud of his dedication and determination to play golf at the highest level.
The PGA Tour has educated us about the importance of giving back. Ricky and I started a foundation in 2011 and have donated close to $1,000,000 to youth programs in Northern California from our annual Ricky Barnes Charity Pro-Am golf tournament.

Throughout my years as a professional athlete, entrepreneur, wife, and busy mother, I have continued to find confidence and happiness. I hope to help others find it too!
