A passionate Western Bulldogs fan, Susan was in the Footscray Cheer Squad as a teenager and desperately wanted to play football. As a young girl, she had to settle for informal cheer squad games as there was nowhere for girls to play competition footy.
Susan has supported women’s football for many years and was a key driver behind the development of AFLW, which she continues to be involved in. She served four terms on the Western Bulldogs’ board and was Vice-President when the club won its historic second premiership in 2016.
A current Director of the Western Bulldogs Forever Foundation, Susan is a passionate advocate of the important role fans play in the fabric of AFL life.
Susan is one of Australia’s leading philanthropists. She has made a significant contribution to medical research, particularly Type 1 diabetes, and other charities over her successful business career.
