Suzanne has lived and worked abroad for over 20 years. Her focus is on training and capacity building. She began as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Niger, working at a rural clinic and focusing on child survival. She went on to work in Bangladesh and then Mozambique, where she managed a micro credit program. She then turned her focus to working with community groups, village health workers and nurses, to strengthen outreach and organizational capacity in the midst of the HIV/AIDS pandemic.
Suzanne has worked in Afghanistan, where she helped design and implement a life and work skills training for female high school teachers as part of USAID’s PROMOTE. She likes to distill complicated processes down to their essence and create systems that are simple and easy to understand. Her trainings are accessible, fun, engaging, and most importantly she makes sure people leave feeling good about themselves and confident in their ability to learn new things.
Suzanne founded Accountable Partners to make sure community-based organizations have the systems, skills and support they need to account for donor funds accurately and transparently, to the last dollar spent.
