Susan has been with TraVek since 2008, and is currently the Marketing Manager. She works with the various advertising agents and radio personalities, and very closely with the sales teams. She is also quite involved in community events on behalf of TraVek. Her day-to-day activities include a lot of networking, and spending a lot of time keeping current on what is going on in the world of Marketing.
Susan's background is in Elementary Education; she taught mostly 6th - 8th grades and then was an Elementary School Principal for seven years.
When Susan moved to the Valley, her intention was to go to nursing school, but she got involved in Small Business America, and has never looked back!
In addition to working with TraVek's Marketing, Susan also spends a fair amount of time working with their software company, Profit Finder Pro Software. She currently teaches a course for NARI for remodeling contractors across the nation, helping them to set up their business and tracking systems, and showing them ways to keep a pulse on what's going on in their businesses.
In her spare time, Susan enjoys playing the piano, making jewelry, reading, fishing, paddle boarding, hiking, studying languages, and doing things with friends and family. She is a published author of 4 books, but the one that has sold many hundreds of copies is Squeaky Cheese: The Ultimate Guide to Making Finnish Leipajuusto. She has traveled the world extensively, and loves to learn about new people and cultures. Most of her travels take her back to be with family and friends in Minnesota several times a year, but her next foreign travels will take her to Italy, Finland and Croatia.
