Meet Suzanne

Suzanne grew up in Libby Montana, her dad owned and operated a small business and her mom was a school bus driver.

Suzanne put herself through college as a single mom to two boys. She worked as a Park Ranger at Libby Dam during college and after graduating accepted a permanent job with the Corps of Engineers at Libby Dam.

After meeting her husband Dean, who was the Chief of Technical Engineering for the Seattle District Corps of Engineers and with offices located at Fairchild Airforce Base, she moved to Spokane with two sons, and in 1997, Dean and Suzanne welcomed their third son. They’ve lived in the same house in Spokane Valley for 24 years. Their children and now grandchildren have attended schools in the Central Valley School District.

Since 1999, Suzanne has represented Washington employers by providing workers’ compensation claims management, Labor & Industries account management, safety consulting services, and compliance recommendations.

In 2016, Suzanne was appointed President/CEO of Associated Builders and Contractors Inland Pacific Chapter. In the last 6 years, she has worked closely with legislators, as well as city and county elected officials, to slow down or stop tax increases and regulations that impair economic growth.


Government overreach is out of control. Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, but agency bureaucracy continues to tax and regulate small businesses out of business. Olympia is out of touch of what we need here in Eastern Washington. Hardworking families are being priced out of housing, transportation, and feeding their families while our state increased taxes to put more unnecessary programs in place and creates larger government that doesn’t understand the plight of the middle class. 

Suzanne has the needed experience in navigating through government red tape to help our small businesses and state economy thrive. She will use her skills and knowledge when dealing with proposed legislation and weighing the impact it will have on you and your family.
