Suzanne Lio will talk about the Bruce Museum’s current educational programming and the museum’s plans to double in size, thus expanding opportunities for the museum and its patrons. Suzanne is managing director, where she develops strategic plans to raise vital operational funds and spearheads unique programs and community projects. She also is chief liaison between the museum and various municipal agencies, overseeing the sustainability of the public-private partnership with the Town of Greenwich. Susan came to the Bruce Museum nearly five years ago with a background in education and grant writing. As senior grant evaluation manager for American Education Solutions, she coordinated the evaluation of millions of dollars in competitive education grants for school districts across the nation. She is a passionate advocate for equality, excellence and diversity in museum education and believes in giving back to the community through active membership and volunteerism at organizations such as the Jennifer Fante Foundation and Shared Harvest Garden in Killingworth, Conn., where she was born. Suzanne holds a bachelor’s degree in English literature from Pace University and currently is seeking a master’s degree in arts administration at Baruch College in Manhattan.
