Pronouns: she/her
Susan is a veteran fundraiser and strategist, with over 25 years of experience in both the for-profit and non-profit sectors. She has raised money for hundreds of progressive organizations, developing a special passion for social change, environmental and women’s causes. Susan has held senior level positions in client service, operations and executive management for the country’s leading outbound direct response firms, including the Share Group, where she was CEO. Working closely with the firm’s staff and its clients, Susan helped bring the company back to health & profitability (before departing in 2007 to work for her favorite client). She then managed HRC’s direct response and monthly giving programs, leading the organization through an unprecedented expansion effort that grew their constituency from 750,000 in 2011 to over 1.5 million in 2013. In 2013 she was promoted to Director, Analytics & Strategy. When she’s not leveraging data & analytics to help achieve equality, Susan spends time with her family in Pittsburgh, PA and pursuing her passions: books, movies, running and traveling.
