Suzanne Jenkins
Born and raised in Vermont, Suzanne received her BSN at the University of Vermont. Suzanne started her healthcare career as a nurse at Maine Medical Center in Portland, Maine, before changing and focusing on Healthcare IT, and supporting software implementations in hospitals and physician offices. She served in many executive roles overseeing product management, product development, implementation and support, for Compucare, GE Healthcare, maxIT, and Leidos.
She moved to northern Virginia over 30 years ago and watched Fairfax county grow in both prosperity and homelessness. She is an avid traveler, and enjoys, golf, tennis and gardening.
Parents that are holding down job(s) and trying to support their families are extraordinarily challenged with the high cost of housing in Fairfax County. Suzanne believes in supporting people who are trying to help themselves, and particularly likes the Family PASS focus on education and training to improve income potential, and jobs that provide healthcare benefits for their family.
