Susan has been working with the Sales and Marketing for TraVek since 2008. She is the one you talk with when you're setting appointments for the design and sales reps to make an initial visit to your home.
Her background is in Elementary Education; she taught mostly 6th - 8th grades and then was an Elementary School Principal for seven years.
When Susan moved to the Valley, her intention was to go back to nursing school, but she got involved in small business America, and has never looked back!
Her daily tasks include working with the Sales people and following the progression of appointments and sales. She spends a lot of time working with various media outlets and continuously works on the message and content of TraVek's advertising.
In addition to working with TraVek's Sales and Marketing, Susan also spends a fair amount of time working with her and her brothers' software company, Profit Finder Pro Software. She uses that to help her keep an eye on the effectiveness of sales and marketing within the business.
Susan does a lot of networking, and spends time every week in marketing and other classes, trying to find new ways to help grow the Sales people and the business.
In her spare time, Susan enjoys playing the piano, making jewelry, reading, fishing, paddle boarding, hiking, studying languages, and doing things with friends and family. She is a published author of 4 books, but the one that has sold many hundreds of copies is Squeaky Cheese: The Ultimate Guide to Making Finnish Leipajuusto. She has traveled the world extensively, and loves to learn about new people and cultures. Most of her travels take her back to be with family and friends in Minnesota several times a year, but her next foreign travels will take her to Israel, Italy, Finland and Croatia.
