We are excited to have new board member, Cathy Landau-Painter, and staff member, Susanna Norwood-Burns join us. Cathy’s career spans the public, private and not-for-profit sectors. As a former partner of KPMG LLP, a global financial services firm, she was responsible for the firm’s domestic public policy agenda throughout the U.S. Prior to that, she was a key member of AARP’s regional and national leadership team. Cathy has extensive experience in governance, strategic planning, branding and public affairs. In addition to her interest in mediation, photography, and travel, Cathy volunteers with a number of diverse political and community organizations.
Susanna has been with the agency for ten years and has worked in a variety of positions, most recently as the Community and Legal Advocate for Lincoln County. Her work includes individual advocacy with victim-survivors, collaboration with law enforcement, the courts, and other community partners to ensure support and safety for survivors of domestic violence, facilitating support groups for incarcerated women who have been affected by domestic abuses and substance use disorders, and providing trainings, community outreach, and education. She looks forward to enhancing and expanding New Hope for Women’s relationships with community partners and criminal justice systems to ensure that victim-survivors know how to access services and find safety.
