She believes in supporting local businesses and giving back to the community.  She does a substantial amount of pro bono work on behalf of low income or indigent clients, and lends her legal expertise to such organizations as the YWCA, ACLU of Utah, the Women's Resource Center, and the Legal Aid Society.


Suzanne lives near the University with her two daughters, KD the beagle, and two cats, Simba and Athena.  When she's not advocating for her clients, you will most likely find her working in her garden, attending her book club, or trying to attract birds to her feeders.
