The Virginia Way
For almost 20 years, Suzanne and her husband, Bill, have been proud to call Northern Virginia home. They both attended Brigham Young University, where Suzanne earned a Bachelor of Science in Social Work, graduating magna cum laude in 1995. Afterwards, she helped Bill complete law school, and together they’ve raised their three daughters, Stephanie, Sydney and Savannah – and 11 months ago were blessed to welcome their first granddaughter, Adaline, into the world.
Suzanne is a seasoned entrepreneur, who’s started and led several small businesses, including Legacy Weddings, a wedding and event planning company she currently owns and operates in Loudoun County. Planning the most important days in the lives of hundreds of Northern Virginia couples has helped Suzanne hone her skills listening to and understanding the needs of others, serving them with keen attention to cost and detail – ask anyone, and they’ll tell you, Suzanne’s no stranger to solving unexpected problems with perseverance, leadership, and accountability.
Serving the community has always been a part of Suzanne’s lifelong passion. Since winning election to the Leesburg Town Council in 2014, she and her colleagues have worked in bipartisan fashion to lower taxes, reduce unnecessary and burdensome regulations, and secure funding for key transportation projects that have allowed local businesses and hundreds of Northern Virginia families to thrive.
Suzanne has always tried to live her life according to the “Virginia Way.” No matter whether it’s in her role as a businesswoman, a public servant, wife, mother, or a grandmother, the values of honesty, decency, and civility live close to her heart. If elected on November 5th, Suzanne will bring her years of experience and pragmatic approach of principled problem-solving to the Virginia State Senate, and help bring the Virginia Way back to Richmond.
