Princeton University, A.B., 1989, magna cum laude



For years, Suzannah had a sign in her office that read “Because we’ve always done it that way” – with a line through it. That sign exemplifies her commitment to identifying new approaches to help clients meet their needs. 

Suzannah’s career path is not of the cookie cutter variety. After becoming an accomplished labor and employment attorney in the private and government settings, she applied her substantive knowledge and analytical skills to the nonprofit health care arena, expanding her toolkit to include an in-depth knowledge of the unique legal issues facing health care providers.    

As a member of the firm’s health care and labor and employment groups, Suzannah often represents health care providers in licensing and regulatory matters, commercial and corporate transactions, contract negotiations and nonprofit corporate governance. She also counsels clients on a wide variety of matters, drawing on her years of experience in the health care arena and as an employment attorney.

Prior to joining the firm she served as general counsel to a large nonprofit health care provider, giving her experience which allows her to understand legal issues in the context of the realities of operating a business. She is well versed in the areas of health care regulation and HIPAA rules. Her experience includes advising clients on a wide variety of employment related matters, negotiating mergers of health care organizations and government entities, shepherding clients through the licensure process, and defending clients in multiple jury trials.

When she isn’t in the office you can find Suzannah spending time with her family or outdoors – running, rowing, or whatever the weather allows – and watching her daughter grow as a person.
