Susan Elliot, a deaf teacher, serves as a Hands & Voices board member and on the Gallaudet Board of Trustees. She was recently featured in the Rocky Mountain News: Massaro: After a Pal's Suicide, She Chose Life.
I first met Susan via videophone last summer when we were scheduled to give a presentation together at a leadership workshop. It is quite a feat to pull off a presentation with someone you've never met before, but I enjoyed working with her.
Gotta love this quote in the article: "If Elliott ever engaged the battery rabbit in a competition, stretcher bearers would haul off the bunny by halftime." It's true-- Susan has boundless energy!
