She served on many committees, from New Member, Cook Book Co-Chair, Special Events Co-Chair, while also providing content for Undercurrents and the JLPB website as Historian and Sustainer Liaison. Her education background is in journalism, writing, and public relations.
Sue’s passion is community advocacy, travel, cooking, and animal/humane issues. A third generation Junior Leaguer, she will be engaged in our JLPB future as we implement the diversity and inclusion initiative, and leadership develops new community relations, programs, and heads toward our 80th anniversary year.
She grew up in Houston, and has called the Palm Beaches her home for over 18 years. Prior to JLPB, she worked on committees at the United Way of Palm Beach and the Easter Seals. She has served on the board of a local humane rescue group, as well as the scholarship fund for her local fire department. As a volunteer in and outside of the League, she has an understanding of the many complex issues our community faces, such as family unity, food deserts, foster care age-out, etc.
Today she is active with the local American Heart Association, the Contemporaries at the Society of the Four Arts, American Friends of British Art, and the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. And she’s “mom” to several rescue kitties.
