With a background in marketing, Susan has spent over 20 years working for consumer products companies. She has a business degree from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo and has been part of the marketing team at Ruffwear in Bend, Oregon since 2008. Working in the outdoor industry offers Susan opportunities to advocate for public land access and protections for critical wildlife habitat — two issues close to her heart. Outside of work, Susan enjoys being outdoors on skis, on the golf course or on the trail with her husband and black lab. A longtime fan of ONDA’s work in Oregon’s high desert, she’s honored to be a part of the effort to protect and restore the high desert’s valuable open spaces.
