Get to know Susan
Hello, I’m Susan.
I’ve been honored to serve our community as a School Board member since 2014. I’ve brought to the School Board broad experience with our schools:
- As a parent of two Rocklin students
- As a volunteer in my children’s schools since 2002; and
- As a parent representative on the School District’s Strategic Planning Team.
I also served on the Rocklin Independent Charter Academy Site Council, a school run by Rocklin Unified to provide a new educational opportunity for children. I am a Certified Public Accountant, with auditing experience, and a Leadership Rocklin graduate.
Susan and her husband, Bill, are proud parents of two children: Kathryn, who attended Sierra and Rocklin elementary schools, Spring View Middle School, and Whitney High School, and Michael, who attended the same schools and is now a Whitney High School junior. Kathryn is now a student at Wheaton College in Illinois. Susan and Bill moved to Rocklin 19 years ago, in large part because of the high quality of schools.
