Susan Lofton

Executive Assistant & Administrator, Governance,
Geological Society of America


I began my work with GSA on 5 July 2013. Prior to joining GSA, I worked at the University of Colorado-Boulder managing the administration and meetings services for the Community Surface Dynamics Modeling System - a growing worldwide community of geologists and modelers. My career has primarily been spent in the non-profit field developing and managing educational and direct human service programs for organizations that include Hospice and the American Red Cross. Before moving to the mainland, I developed and managed a scholarship program for first generation students on the Big Island of Hawai`i. Prior to that, I spent over five years in India managing center leader and teacher training programs for meditation centers and retreats held throughout India.
