Susan Giannettino has been an avid listener and supporter of public radio for over thirty years and has the coffee mugs from stations in four states to prove it!
Susan retired in 2010 as Deputy State Director for the Bureau of Land Management. Prior to that role, she worked throughout the west, having started her federal service with the Forest Service in 1975 in Montana. She saw the importance of public lands to the people of the west. Economically, socially, culturally and politically; natural resource policy choices are vital issues in Idaho requiring difficult choices with significant consequences. These are topics to be addressed by public radio.
Susan has degrees in cultural anthropology from the Universities of Montana and Washington and in Instructional and Performance Technology from BSU. Susan is currently a Trustee for the Idaho Chapter of The Nature Conservancy, on the Board of Idaho Trails Association, on the Hailey Arts and Historic Preservation Committee and is a courtesy ski patroller for the Blaine County cross country ski trails.
A founding member of the Flicks Book Club, Susan loves to read. But the activities that have really expanded with retirement are the active ones; travel, cross country skiing, running, and hiking.
