Before becoming a Watershed educator, Suzanne taught high school mathematics at the American School of Warsaw; middle school and high school mathematics at the United World College Maastricht; and high school mathematics at Lincoln Park High School in Chicago. Additionally, she has supervised International Award (Duke of Edinburgh) student expeditions in Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and the U.K.

Suzanne has been to the Netherlands, Poland, Belgium, Germany, Denmark, Norway, Iceland, Bosnia, Montenegro, Russia, Greece, Italy, United Kingdom, Switzerland, France, Spain, Hungary, Slovakia, Czechia, Austria, Israel, Australia and Ecuador (Galapagos).

A proud native of Bloomington, Indiana, Suzanne attended graduate school and taught in Chicago for several years before moving abroad. Suzanne spent five years teaching IB (International Baccalaureate) Mathematics in the Netherlands and Poland and is grateful for the opportunity to learn more about the history, language, and culture of these and other fascinating countries. Suzanne enjoys being outside and active, including backpacking, camping, cycle touring, triathlons, and yoga. She is also a lifelong nerd who loves puzzles, sci-fi, overly complicated board games, bridge, reading and learning pretty much anything new. Though a theoretical mathematician by training, Suzanne is now most interested in exploring the many awesome applications of math in the modern world and giving all students authentic opportunities to experience the power of applying math to their own lives. To this end, she has been involved in the development of an applications-based curriculum for the International Baccalaureate.
