Member Relations Director
Susan brings her personal and professional experience to Parkinson Place in an effort to provide superior service for members, caregivers, and families. Sixteen years ago Susan’s husband, Craig, then an Executive Vice President for a large construction management company, was diagnosed with early-onset Parkinson’s disease. In an effort to secure the best resources for Craig, they relocated from New York to Sarasota to gain access to the over 60 ongoing classes, educational programs, events, and other free services offered every month at Parkinson Place.
In addition to serving as Member Relations Director, Susan is instrumental in professionally designing education and promotion materials for distribution and online outreach. She received her B.F.A. degree in Graphic Design from the New York Institute of Technology and has spent her entire career in education, business, and the art sectors.
Susan is a major asset to Parkinson Place whose mission is to meet the physical, mental, emotional, and social needs of those living with Parkinson’s disease. Susan, her family, and friends have raised more than $100,000 towards fighting for a cure.
