Biography

A native of New York, Susan attended Cornell University as an undergraduate, and Oxford University (St. Antony's College) as a doctoral student. Her academic background is in Latin American politics and history, and she has taught in the USA, Mexico, Ivory Coast, and Brazil.

Susan helped found a business with her husband Eric, who is an expert on Africa, managing investments in the emerging markets. Susan was involved primarily in strategic investment decisions, notably regarding Latin America. Susan and her husband also helped found a biotech startup that is conducting final clinical trials for a drug to treat autism.

Susan’s lifelong passion for education led her to take a rather unconventional path when they decided to homeschool most of their five children. Susan managed their homeschooling experiment, and became an expert on alternative education, providing consulting services to the Sarah Lawrence Early Childhood Center, and the Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth.

Susan has always been an advocate for education and for the arts. She served on the board of the Alvin Ailey School of Dance (NYC), and the National Ability Center (Park City). She is involved in Park City community affairs, and was a member of the Park City Leadership Class of 2010. She joined the Sundance Institute's Utah Advisory Board in 2008, and has served on the community, government, and development committees. She has also co-chaired the Artists at the Table opening night Sundance Film Festival fundraiser. She is passionate about the stories Sundance tells, and is particularly interested in issues involving women and girls, education, human rights, and social justice.

Having spent time in Utah for decades, Susan moved her base West in 2008. She can often be found on the Park City trail system with her two Bernese mountain dogs. Susan skis, snowshoes, hikes, mountain bikes, and is devoted to her children and grandchildren.
