By Susan Lieu, Marketing + Operations Interim Support

Greetings, I’m Susan and I’m so excited to be part of this team focused on marketing and operations support. For the next several months I’ll be working on projects from fundraising to implementing a new CRM system.

Originally from the Bay Area, I’ve lived in Seattle for the past 4 years and am a proud West Seattleite. I bring a blended private and public sector background to Ada. On the private side, I started Socola Chocolatier with my sister in San Francisco, have consulted to Fortune 100 companies and have an MBA from Yale. In the social sector, I have worked on international development issues (Zambia, India and Vietnam), served on numerous non-profit boards, and am a former Coro Fellow in Public Affairs. I believe cross-sector partnerships can bring dynamic solutions to the table and am so excited to support Ada to make tech a more gender diverse workplace.

Outside of Ada, you can find me onstage as a one-woman show performer or in the outdoors mountaineering and rock climbing with my husband. I am an aspirational Bernese Mountain Dog owner and amateur succulent gardener.
