Meet the Candidate: Treasurer

Here is a bit about nominee for Treasurer, Susan Helier

When a job transfer landed me in Utah (a New York via California transplant), I never intended to be here long. That was thirty years ago. During that time, I’ve raised a daughter, Madeline and been engaged as a Legal Assistant for twenty-five years. I fell in love with Utah and can’t imagine living anywhere else (except, perhaps, on a beach in Bali.) When I’m not horsing around, you can find me at a hockey game, Utes game, reading, cooking or travelling.

My daughter, Madeline, is also a horse lover and competed before college. We all know the story . . . kid goes away to school; mom inherits a horse. After trying out my new-found horsey skills in eventing for a couple years and with one too many unplanned dismounts, it became apparent, that it was time to change disciplines.

I’ve enjoyed being involved with UDS and have been a member for 3 years. My lovely mare and I participate in as many shows as we can. I’ve seen how hard the leaders of this organization work to create opportunities for us to show, clinic and learn and I suspect it isn’t always easy or appreciated. If this committee finds me qualified to serve in the position of Treasurer, I will look forward to joining the efforts of UDS to promote the sport we love and support the members we serve. Below is a summary of my financial experiences.

Operations Officer, California Federal Savings & Loan (3 yrs); Chair of Finance Committee/Treasurer for a Utah non-profit (6 yrs); Auction Co-Chair (financial piece), McGillis School (2 yrs). I have been a small business owner and am familiar with Quick Books and Excel.

Thank you for your consideration.
