Susan and her husband Brian have lived in Lafayette for 20 years, along with their children Allison and Peter.  Susan grew up in Orinda, and after travels for school and jobs, returned to Lamorinda for all of the same reasons we all choose to live here.  She has 15 years of fundraising service with Lombardy Branch of Children’s Hospital Oakland, and she is a board member of the Springhill Valley Homeowners Association.  Susan has contributed in some manner every year with her children and schools.  Her latest position was spearheading the first year of the ‘Senior Gift’ where Acalanes High School families donate directly to the LPIE Endowment Fund in honor of their graduating students. The ‘Gift that Keeps on Giving’ is a concept that many public high schools are adopting, and she hopes LPIE is successful with the project well into the future.  Susan is a Nuclear Engineer and currently works at Carl Zeiss X-Ray Microscopy in Pleasanton.
