Susan joined WMC in 1996 as an administrative assistant for three lobbyists on the government relations team. She was excited for the challenge to learn more about WMC’s impact in Wisconsin and eager to be a part of its dynamic team. Within just a few months, she expanded her role to help support the WMC Foundation by bringing her knowledge, skills and experience of working with Wisconsin business leaders.
As a member of the Foundation team, Susan is responsible for helping to deliver educational programs on business issues, the free enterprise system, economics, and workforce development initiatives – all of which are the heart of the Foundation’s mission.
She also works closely with leaders of local chambers of commerce through WMC’s Wisconsin Chamber of Commerce Executives program. WCCE is focused on professional development, advocacy and workforce development for chamber professionals throughout the state.
Susan graduated from Madison College and is a member of the American Society of Administrative Professionals. She was born and raised on a century-old dairy farm in southwest Wisconsin, which is still operational today. She is married to her high school sweetheart, has three children, and lives in Lake Wisconsin area.
