Susan brings a world of skill and knowledge to this important position with the Talent Network, which has become an essential tool for breaking news, enterprise and digital-only features.
She is a terrific editor — organized and detail-oriented, but also able to rise above the day’s noise to identify big story ideas and themes and bring those to fruition. And she has a proven track record as an effective and creative editor who lifts the journalism of all those with whom she works.
These qualities will serve her – and us – well as she takes on a job that requires close collaboration across the newsroom. Her ability to juggle tasks will be critical as we work with colleagues in engineering to drive the evolution of the Talent Network to meet the newsroom’s changing needs.
Susan returned to The Post in 2015 as the National Desk’s deputy health, science and environment editor after two years at Politico as deputy editor of a 10-person health care policy team. From 1993 to 2008, Susan worked on The Post’s Metro staff covering health, medicine, aging and the death penalty, as a special projects reporter and as assistant Virginia editor for state government and politics. She came to The Post from The Dallas Morning News, where she had worked as night/weekend editor and as an assignment editor for courts, government and social services. Earlier, she worked at The Philadelphia Inquirer as a national correspondent covering New England.
