Getting Clear About The Artist You Want To Be

Likely best known for her breakout role as “Pam,” in Netflix’s Jessica Jones (opposite Krysten Ritter), Florida native Susie Abromeit, has proven herself a force to be reckoned with.

Before she made her mark on Hollywood, Susie came very close to a career as a professional tennis player. Receiving a full scholarship to Duke University, she was one of the top ranked players (#6 in the US), helping her team earn a number one ranking and NCAA title during her freshman year. Not long after, however, fate had a different plan, when she decided to transition into pursuing her musical talents, in addition to acting and modeling full-time.

Susie went on to perform a song with Fat Joe for Atlantic Records, and their song “Slow Your Roll,” became a summer hit playing on various radio stations. A few of her other songs that she performed, wrote, and produced, became top requested songs on local radio stations throughout Florida. From there, she graced the pages of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition, while simultaneously making her film debut as the lead in the Lionsgate film, Know Thy Enemy, playing a female rapper. Soon after, she began to book roles in films, Sydney White, Sex Drive, I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell, Setup, alongside Bruce Willis, and the blockbuster hit Battle: Los Angeles.

Additional credits include: Chicago Med, Devious Maids, One Tree Hill, as well as Tyler Perry’s, The Haves and Have Nots, Rake, Legends of Tomorrow, Code Black, Supernatural, NCIS, among many others.

Aside from her work on-camera, Susie is also passionate about producing and writing her own projects. She had recently completed a pilot presentation that she wrote, produced, and starred alongside Erin Moriarty, Peter Facinelli, Kellan Lutz, Alona Tal, and Ethan Peck.

On the philanthropic front, Susie serves as an ambassador on the creative council for the non-partisan organization Represent.us, also supported by Jennifer Lawrence, JJ Abrams, Adam McKay, Amy Adams, and Michael Douglas to name a few. She also serves as an ambassador for Not For Sale, an organization that helps survivors of human trafficking.

Next up for Susie is the anticipated summer blockbuster The Forever Purge (Universal Pictures) due out this July, as well as King Richard (Warner Bros.), opposite Will Smith due to release in 2022.

Susie Abromeit resides in Los Angeles.
