Suzanne grew up in Burlington, Iowa and was introduced to the Arts at an early age. She learned to appreciate and love music while performing in instrumental and dance groups throughout her time in the Burlington School District. While attending Truman University, she was a member of various musical groups and expanded her education in the Arts.
In 1976, Suzanne moved to Colorado and later began a 36 year career in banking, retiring in 2016. She served in various capacities during her career, including financial services through Private Banking, marketing support, management and community involvement, finally, retiring in the position of Senior Vice President, Fort Collins Market Manager. During these years she also served on a variety of non-profit boards including, Larimer Humane Society, Women’s Center, Larico Youth Homes plus volunteer positions with Poudre School District’s PACE and Teen Parent programs and Fort Collins Community Foundation. Suzanne’s love of animals has drawn her to continue her support of the Larimer Humane Society as a volunteer.
Her other interests include gardening, cooking, outdoor activities and enjoying time with her family.
Suzanne welcomes the opportunity to serve on the Fort Collins Symphony Board and looks forward to expanding her knowledge of music through this experience.
