In her career as a writer, editor, fundraiser, public relations professional and advocate for those in need, Suzan brings a sense of urgency and vitality to each task or project.
Her writing career brought her from a newspaper reporter in Connecticut to an education newsletter and health magazine writer in Washington, D.C., to covering entertainment for the Los Angeles Daily News and back to Connecticut as a columnist, city editor and statewide political reporter for a major Connecticut newspaper. She has won a statewide journalism award for an investigatory series on municipal corruption and shared a national hard news award for an inside look at the life of a big city mayor who is incarcerated today. Along the way, she won respect from those she covered for her diligence and fairness.
During her subsequent career as an advocate for people 50 and older and those who are homeless, Suzan used her communications and organizational skills to expand the reach of those organizations. As Director of Communications for AARP CT, Suzan trained and implemented several grassroots operations to support policies and programs with state and federal decision-makers.
As a fundraiser for several non-profit agencies, Suzan brought together caregivers, clients and supporters of each agency to present a marketable message and a compelling story to public and private donors for financial support.
She is a multi-tasker who breaks down tasks into manageable projects while not losing sight of the shared goal. She knows the landscape, knows how to sell a positive message and knows how to tell a story to get results.
Suzan brings her skills, along with her enthusiasm and passion for crafting a spot-on message, to every job she accepts.
