Susanne Lake is an entrepreneur at heart. After working for others in tourism and technology for more than thirty years, she retired from the County of Sonoma so she could focus her energy on helping women create wealth.

Along with her fiancé, Tim Gibney, she also owns a home remodeling construction business.
