About Susan

Welcome. For some reason or another, you’ve stumbled upon my humble website. Now that you’re here, it only seems fair to let you know what you’re in for. Dig around, and you’ll find some of my writing, work experience, photography, and grad school work.

In 2015, after a lifetime on the East Coast bouncing between New Jersey, Boston, Maryland, and Brooklyn, I applied to what I thought was a remote opportunity for an organization in New Mexico. The job actually required moving to New Mexico and after discussing the idea with my spouse, I moved to Albuquerque in 2016. My spouse did follow me, and my misunderstanding about that job ended up being one of the best mistakes I ever made.

Since arriving in the southwest, I’ve put my experience to work advocating for public lands at a nonprofit and promoting responsible recreation and equal access to the outdoors. Currently, I have the honor of serving in Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham’s administration in the Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department promoting our state’s efforts to reduce emissions in the oil and gas sector, promote outdoor recreation, expand renewable energy, and promote responsible and sustainable natural lands management.

In my free time, I enjoy hiking, camping, and exploring this beautiful piece of the country I’ve found myself in. I also enjoy reading, gardening, doing yoga, cooking, and gazing at the cuteness of my two dogs and cat.
