A Business and Legal Affairs lawyer for a film studio is Los Angeles, California, Susie is an experienced litigator and a lifelong animal advocate. She has supported a number of animal rescue organizations over the years and is passionate about finding new ways to use entertainment to educate the public on environmental and wildlife conservation, how to properly take care of animals, and the importance of adopting companion animals from shelters.
She shares her home with Apple, a grey Staffy/pit bull mix dog rescued from an irresponsible breeder.
