Director of Advancement and Donor Relations
Holding leadership roles throughout her career, Suzanne developed her skills among entrepreneurial teams in for-profit and not-profit organizations, successfully launching and re-directing organizations, products and services, with a focus on nurturing the relationships, internal/external, that are the cornerstone of an organization’s success.
Throughout the explosive early tech eras Suzanne was instrumental in defining markets and messaging for start-ups, and then took on the breadth of the industry as VP of Corporate Communications for COMDEX, messaging the key benefits of 2,000 leading technology companies to worldwide media for nearly a decade. As her passions shifted her focus to nonprofits and building financial foundations through creative fundraising initiatives, she directed the strategic development of a new national park, and directed the launch of a collaborative education initiative for a group of 120 wineries resulting in a strengthened recognition of a wine region well beyond an individual winery.
Suzanne raised her two sons in Concord MA, and moved to Cape Cod in 2013 with her side-kick Golden Retriever – Cowboy, once again ready for change and the life experiences that come with taking chances. Together, she and her husband Steve share six grandchildren who ensure that every free moment is an adventure.
