Starting as a child Susan’s friends teased her because she wouldn’t leave outings until they had picked up all their litter, and everyone else’s too. After 20 years as an engineer and manager at Hewlett Packard and Agilent Technologies, 5 years of that denying her passion for sustainability because she thought it couldn’t be a business career, Susan reconnected to that early passion for creating a healthy environment for people to live and work. She now has eight years experience in sustainable business consulting and teaches about sustainable business practices in the Green MBA at Dominican University of California.
Her specialty is helping clients improve resource efficiency through sustainability education, opportunity assessments, environmental and sustainability management systems based on ISO 14001, carbon foot printing and reduction strategies using the latest protocols, and project management.
Susan holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering; an M.B.A. in Environmental Entrepreneurship; an M.A. in Culture, Ecology and Sustainable Communities; and is a fellow of the Leadership Institute for Ecology and the Economy. She also volunteers in her community to promote sustainable businesses and neighborhoods, and is making her home more sustainable with efficiency projects and growing organic food.
