Susan built a long journalism career as a newspaper reporter and associate magazine editor before becoming a freelance journalist for regional and national magazines. She worked for a while as a community liason for an EPA Superfund project and, after moving to Austin, built a successful content writing business writing blogs, email marketing campaigns, white papers and more.

Best Mentee Fit:

I am interested in working with students or entry or mid-level professionals, who want to try something they have a passion for into which they would like to pivot. I’ve worked in journalism, content marketing, pretty much anything having to do with words and can best help people who work with words. I can do coffees, lunches, or phone or skype visits. I’m interested in a short term mentorship to cope with a specific issue or pivot.
