Susan held various positions at Sky before taking the reins in 2000 as CEO, President, and Publisher. During her tenure, she led Sky through a number of transitions and strategic initiatives that helped transform it into the leading publisher of astronomy periodicals and books. She oversaw S&T's significant growth in advertising and newsstand sales, the launch of Night Sky magazine and Beautiful Universe, the licensing of two international editions, two successful redesigns of our website (including the recent SkyandTelescope.com), and eventually the sale of the company's assets to New Track Media in February 2006. Susan continues in her position as President / Publisher of Sky under the new ownership.

Susan has a B.A. in English and American Literature from Brandeis University and an M.B.A. from Northeastern University. Before coming to Sky in 1993, she was the COO of New England Beverage Publications and prior to that, held positions in international marketing at Addison-Wesley.
