When I was 13, my mind was filled with images from an Egypt of long ago… pharaohs, pyramids, mummies, and beautiful objects buried for centuries. To get closer to what interested me, I offered my services to the Royal Ontario Museum as a summer intern… for an archaeological dig… in Egypt. While I was “too young to represent the museum abroad”, I was hired for a summer position in the ROM’s Library which then led to summer/weekend employment throughout high school and allowed me to meet many interesting individuals. One such person was the museum’s paper conservator to whom I apprenticed for seven years. My 25 years of restoring historic and artistic works on paper took me into public/private art collections across Canada and throughout this country. I’ve had the privilege of treating woodcuts by Durer, Rembrandt etchings, Picasso drawings as well as ancient papyrus and mummy wrappings.

My eyes and interests changed during the early-90s‎. I made a 180 degree shift from the museum world to real estate. By 1996 I was managing broker of the Coldwell Banker office in Bergen Park. From Coldwell Banker to real estate sales in the greater Evergreen area with Fuller Towne & Country Properties and then back into management with what is now known as LIV Sotheby’s International Realty. I am a member of our Center for the Arts Evergreen, a supporter of the Evergreen Chamber Orchestra, as well as Art Coordinator for the gallery at Alliance Française de Denver. Most recently, I was honored with being named “2017 Evergreen Arts Person of the Year “. From my home in ‘old town’ Morrison, I enjoy gardening, studying classical guitar, fly fishing (Life Member of Trout Unlimited), playing baroque recorder, ‎and the company of my canine companion, Lady.

Coming soon…

Susan’s life has been defined by sports and charity. While growing up in Ohio, each of her parents encouraged her and her siblings in their own way. “Dad was active, mom was charitable,” she explains. When her mother asked her to help with a Junior League fundraiser she offered to be in the dunk tank. “I sat there for hours and it made an impression on me-that it could be fun to help.”

Susan’s love of skiing led her to choose Colorado State University for college. After graduating, she took a year off and moved to Vail where she worked as a dishwasher and skied. A year of skiing and dishwashing, however, motivated Susan to go to CU Law School. There, she met her husband, Frank.

After moving to Montana, Boulder, and Lakewood, Susan and Frank eventually settled in Evergreen. Susan started her own law practice in Evergreen focused on estate planning and elder law. She shared office space with other local attorneys. In 1987, one of them, Jim Robinson, got her to join the board of Mount Evans Home Health Care & Hospice. She spent 25 years on the board, including three terms as president, and saw the organization grow as a thriving community asset. Most of her time on the board was spent on fundraising events like the Freedom Run 5K and the Annual Benefit Gala.

Her time on the Mount Evans board led to many other connections such as Leadership Evergreen and Kiwanis, as well as introducing her to organizations she likes to support such as Mountain Area Land Trust (MALT), EAS+Y (Evergreen Alliance for Sustainability and YOU), Center for the Arts Evergreen (CAE) and Bootstraps.

When Susan turned 60, she joined the staff of Mount Evans. The organization was looking for someone to do planned giving, 15-20 hours a week. With Susan’s experience in estate planning and elder law, it seemed like a perfect fit. Susan retired from her position with Mount Evans last summer after nearly five years, but she continues to give her expertise, time and attention again as a board member.
