Sushil Cheema


I’m Sushil Cheema.

I do many things,

but mostly I work with stories.

I’ve been a freelance breaking news reporter for The New York Times, a multimedia reporter for The Wall Street Journal, and an editor for a personal finance website. Now, I use my interviewing, listening, and storytelling skills to help professionals in transition as a coach.

I find writing therapeutic. I try to find time to write or engage in some other creative endeavor every day. My first work of fiction, a mid-grade children’s book, was published in April 2023. Called In the Mix and part of the series Fearless, I co-authored it with Broadway actress Mandy Gonzalez.

I’m a big believer in the power of movement and meditation and an advocate of making life a creative act.
