I spent the early part of my career building skills in office management, accounting and procurement while I was in college pursuing a BA degree in English. I was lucky enough to have many great mentors in my life and a few of them inspired me to take a leap and pursue marketing. Thanks to some initial luck I started in a junior marketing role in 2008 and have since found a true love in what it means to serve customers by bringing products to life, leveraging the world of data and crafting the strategies that communicate a brand's unique value to the marketplace.

Suzanne joined Gaidge and impact360 in 2018 as their Chief Marketing Officer and was appointed Chief Operating Officer in 2022. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in English from the University of Utah in 2003 and achieved an Executive MBA with the class of 2017.
