Susan’s interest in peoples’ stories began as a child, growing up in Montreal in a multi-lingual, multi-cultural community with immigrants from all over the world. She was captivated by their amazing stories of struggle and success.
After founding, growing, and selling a destination management company in Colorado called Convention Designs, Susan reconnected with her childhood passion, and in the year 2000, she founded Family Legacies to capture personal, family, and business stories on video and film.
Over the past 22 years, Family Legacies has produced over 200 feature film quality legacy films, nationally and internationally, using the latest cutting-edge technologies.
Susan works with families as well as wealth advisors, family offices, estate planners, and philanthropic advisors helping advisors to connect with the rising generation.
Susan is involved in numerous boards and community service activities, including leadership positions particularly in the business community, civil rights, international affairs, dialogue groups, and education, and is the incoming Board Chair for the Mountain States Region of the Anti-Defamation League. She speaks seven languages.
