Susan was born a New Yorker from Queens, but raised in Sandy, Utah to
become the woman she is today. As the first of six daughters, Susan and
her sisters learned the value of hard work at a very young age from
their entrepreneurial parents who included them in the family
businesses. In fact, Susan received her first 1099, as an independent
contractor, at the tender age of 8 years old and with the exception of
the births of her two children, she has worked ever since.
Her hard-working parents also instilled a strong sense of community
service in her family. Susan volunteered multiple times a week for The
Rescue Mission of Salt Lake during her adolescence.
Susan attended Bellview, Mount Jordan Middle School, and Jordan High
School. She also attened
Salt Lake Community College part time, many years ago
and recently returned to school at Ashford University. She is pursuing
her bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Government and double
minor in Business Economics and Public Administration. She hopes to
further her education by attending law school.
Susan works in insurance as a Corporate Trainer.
Susan’s greatest joy in life is found in her large family, especially
her two children, Eliza and Oscar.
45 encompasses large portions of Sandy and Cottonwood
Heights, the nothern half of White City, and the eastern-most portion
Midvale. Based on the last census, 34% of our population is
age 45 which makes us unique in Utah Demographics. Our school
aged population is one of the smallest in the state. As our
District ages, our needs will change and our legislature needs to
adjust our priorities to match our aging population.
