“Everyday, I try to make decisions that protect Mother Earth.”
“When I was a child, I would hunker down on the beach squinting, trying to spot a dolphin fin, a whale spout, and even the iridescent tail of a mermaid.” As an adult Susan's admiration and respect for the seas led her to get involved in ocean protection. “I love the ocean because it is full of mystery, soothes my soul and makes me aware of its immense power.” She even met and fell in love with her husband David while working on a conservation project in Alaska.
Always a creative and positive force, Susan is an activist who is devoted to nurturing the planet. “Everyday, I try to make decisions that protect Mother Earth, from food and clothing purchases to work choices.” She sits on the board of Oceana and is Chairwoman of Oceana's Ocean Council, a member of the Global Leadership Council for Natural Resources Defense Council and serves on the committee for the Stone Barns Center for Sustainable Agriculture.
