Susan O'Brien grew up in Houston, graduating from the University of Houston. Susan spent most of her career in Talent and Leadership Development at American Express. In 2016, Susan and her husband of 32 years, Jim, chose Burnet as their retirement home.
In 2017 Susan met a women in her yoga class, Dottie Yturri, who was wearing a Beto for Senate button. Dottie invited her to be a guest at a Highland Lakes Democratic Women meeting and the rest is history. Susan is now the incoming Vice-President for HLDW.
Susan has contributed a tremendous amount of time and enthusiasm to HLDW. An ovarian cancer diagnosis in late 2019, and then a year lost to the COVID pandemic, reinforced her drive to make a difference in her community and state, in whatever way she can and with whatever time she has left.
