Susan grew up in Beverly, MA, moved to LA and then settled in Philly, where she raised two children and practiced law for over 20 years. She was lucky enough to be able to return to Boston a few years ago. She received a Master’s in Organization Development with Academic Distinction from American University, a JD from Loyola Law School, and a BA in Philosophy from Brandeis University.
