Suzanne grew up in Pennsylvania and lived there until her career in financial services brought her to Arizona. Shortly after moving to Phoenix she met her husband and they started a family. After the birth of her first child, Suzanne left her position as a Vice President with Bank One to become a stay at home mom. She enjoys helping others and volunteering her time in the community and at her children’s schools.
Suzanne’s daughter performed in Phoenix Youth Ballet Theatre’s production of “The Nutcracker Suite” for the first time in 2012. Watching her daughter go through the entire process from auditions to rehearsals to performing in the show, Suzanne was impressed with how professional and positive the experience was for the young dancers. She watched the level of detail that goes into each part of the show and the individual attention each student received and knew she had found the best program for her daughter to continue to grow as a dancer. Her daughter loves being apart of PYBT’s production of “The Nutcracker Suite “and their youth ballet company. Suzanne is excited to join the board of directors and hopes to positively contribute to the continued success of Phoenix Youth Ballet Theatre and it’s programs.
