Susan Burdett and her husband Mark moved to Countryside in 2000 with their two children, Lindsay and Jason.  They became involved in the community early on and have been active ever since.

Susan earned her Accounting degree with honors in 1983–when the work was still done with pencils on columnar pads. She has kept up with the many changes in accounting through continuing education and seminars. Susan currently works for a loop law firm as their Office and Financial Manager. She directs all aspects of managing a small firm including human resources, financial, file maintenance and retention and benefits administration. Susan belongs to several professional organizations including the Society of Human Resource Managers and the Association of Legal Administrators where she serves on the Chicago Chapter’s Board of Directors as Membership Director.  Her business leadership qualities, coupled with her business experience and knack for details will be a great asset to the position of City Clerk.

Susan and Mark are grandparents to Edison Jack Hosanna.  Susan likes to run and participates in 5-k runs when she can.
