Susie, Vacation Planner
Vacation Planner Susie has been serving guests of Bennington Properties since the winter of 2016 - 2017. She comes to our family after having many years experience in the hospitality field. Susie is always happy to assist vacationers and paints a beautiful picture of everything Sunriver has to offer.
“I worked at a competitor here in Sunriver and on my break, one day stopped in and applied.”
Susie grew up in Grants Pass, OR with her brother and two sisters. She is widowed, but surrounded with love by her 12 children and 16 grandchildren. Rounding out her family are her dogs, cats, and chickens! Susie hopes to add some horses to the mix soon.
For years, Susie lived on a farm while raising rabbits, chickens, ducks, cows, and goats. She enjoyed the world of lapidary—relating to stone and gems and the work involved in engraving, cutting, or polishing—riding horses, and racing motorcycles. Now, she is committed to work, and rarely finds time for her past leisure activities.
Susie enjoys learning and has degrees in Addiction Studies, Business, Accounting, Psychology. She is currently working on adding to her resume with a degree in Natural Medicine (i.e. Essential Oils and Herbs).
Looking to start over, Susie came to Sunriver. She enjoys the local wilderness and most seasons; winter if there’s snow on the ground, and summer if it’s hot. After 15 months of working at Bennington Properties, she still loves coming to work and enjoying the time she spends in the office.
“The open communication and teamwork make one of the best work experience I have had the pleasure of being a part of.”
