Susan was named to this position for the Neutrogena skincare and hair care businesses based in Los Angeles in February 2009. Her responsibilities were expanded late in 2009 to include the Neutrogena cosmetics business in New York City, with a combined total retail sales responsibility over $1 billion dollars across 13 categories in both the consumer and professional dermatology markets. Her key responsibilities include developing the strategic vision and operating plan for the business, creating marketing and advertising strategies that build market share and strengthen brand equity, creating and executing new product innovation strategies to drive growth, and developing talent and the organizational culture.

In 2005, Susan was named Vice President of Marketing for Johnson & Johnson Inc. in Montreal, Canada, where she led the marketing department and portfolio across all Johnson & Johnson brands in Canada within the Beauty, Baby and Consumer Healthcare global business units. Under her leadership, the marketing team drove sales and share gains across the company portfolio.

Welcome to the 2013 Go Red For Women Luncheon webpage! We’re delighted you are here and appreciate your interest in learning how you can advance health, stop heart disease and save women’s lives. That’s what the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women® movement is all about.
Heart disease isn’t just a man’s problem. It’s a woman’s problem, too. In fact, it’s the No. 1 killer of women. And, tragically, far too few women realize their risk from this preventable disease. We need to raise women’s awareness of their risk and protect our mothers, daughters, sisters, friends and ourselves.
You can help, starting today. Here’s how:
First, take charge of your own heart health. Visit your doctor. Know your numbers (learn more at www.GoRedForWomen.org). You can improve your blood pressure, cholesterol and other numbers by making lifestyle changes. You’ll be healthier and look and feel better, too.
Second, join the American Heart Association in making it your mission to fight heart disease in women. Help spread the word that heart disease is women’s No. 1 killer. Share what you learn today with your family and members of your community. Tell five women you want them to live and we can help stop heart disease in our lifetime.
Third and last, consider making a contribution. Your donation today will make a difference in the lives of women here and across the country. You can help fund local and national Go Red activities that support awareness, research, education and community programs that benefit women.
Thank you again for being here. My hope is that you won’t leave today without committing to making a difference by joining the Go Red For Women movement — women everywhere need your help. Only one in five women believes that heart disease is her greatest health threat. We believe reducing risk and preventing heart disease starts with education — and you. There’s so much to do, and so much at stake.
With your commitment, we can help women and their families live longer, stronger lives. Thank you for your generous support.
