Suzanne began attending HSCF meetings with her husband Steve fifteen years ago and was fortunate to accompany him as an observer on many hunts around the world. Through their travels she developed an interest in writing about and photographing wildlife and indigenous peoples.
Following her husband’s death, Suzanne decided to try her hand at hunting. It was his passion and she wanted to honor him by continuing on with their love of wildlife and wild places. Through the HSCF Suzanne has met many amazing conservationists and has had the opportunity to work alongside and partner with them on projects including drilling a water well in Zimbabwe dedicated to Steve’s memory.
Suzanne recently joined as support staff to the Smile and See Safari, a group of dental and optometry professionals who organize mobile clinics in Zimbabwe’s rural communities. Suzanne fervently believes that opportunities to help both wildlife and those who live among them can be addressed through a respectful partnership between hunters and non-hunters with a willingness to seek common ground. Suzanne is a life member of HSCF (and a proud Gazelle), DSC, and the NRA. She currently serves on the Neurological Institute National Council at Houston Methodist Hospital with the objectives of providing support to physicians and advocacy for patients. Suzanne is a graduate of Texas A&M University, a former executive with the Sam Houston Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America, and has served on the boards of the Montgomery County Cattle Barons Ball and the Lake Conroe Area Republican Women.
Suzanne continues to enjoy photography and writing and is seeking new ways to incorporate these hobbies into her love of travel and as a means to document her personal goals – the conservation of our wild world and supporting medical research and missions both here and abroad.
