Susan still remembers answering a question in her 11th grade calculus class and hearing her teacher, Mr. McCarthy, compare her to Einstein. When she explained that the answer just popped into her head, he commented that that was how Einstein often spoke about his ideas.
Susan manages the Foundation’s awards program and annual gala and is the point woman for the Board of Directors. She’s been working in nonprofits throughout her career, and her passion for giving children a chance to succeed is a perfect match for the Foundation’s mission.
In addition to her extensive nonprofit experience, Susan completed a pastry arts program at a French culinary school and worked briefly at a four-star restaurant in DC. Though chronic tennis elbow put an end to that career path, she did impart a sophisticated palate and an appreciation for unusual ingredients to her son.
