Throughout her roles as a corporate leader, mother, school volunteer, community organizer, and current member of the School Board, she consistently comes up with practical, effective solutions to complex problems.
Balancing the interests of the Princeton K-12 students and the community at large, Susan is a consensus builder that balances the needs of diverse stakeholders. She is flexible and eager to hear other points of view even if they differ from her own. When addressing even the thorniest issues, she engages in an articulate, fact-based, thoughtful way that invites others to work towards a common understanding and equitable solutions.
In each endeavor, Susan engages hands-on and tackles challenges no matter how large or small.

These are just some of the many traits that have allowed Susan to become a productive and valued member of the School Board.
