Susan Wandersman works as the Director of Business Development for The Siegel Law Group, P.A. Susan’s career has been all about relationships—helping connect good people to do good things for their family, clients and community.
Her experience is vast and diverse. She worked for a private home healthcare company in Palm Beach County for two decades and, prior to joining, The Siegel Law Group, P.A., served as the Director of Client Services for a large local accounting firm. In that capacity, she helped develop professional alliances and expand the firm’s community involvement.
Susan has always been ambitious and driven—capable of turning around procedures to streamline efficiencies. After climbing the ranks at a Medicaid home healthcare company that went public, she then moved to Florida to assist her family with her father’s terminal diagnosis.(She also later cared for her mother, who battled Alzheimer’s, and so she intimately understands the struggles that people experience when dealing with elder law and end of life care situations.)
Always resourceful, Susan found her niche in evolving into a Business Development role with a private home healthcare company in Florida. She found inspiration through books, tapes and seminars on building relationships. She discovered that she loved the ability to provide introductions, launch people’s careers, find them opportunities personally and professionally, and in turn gain referrals. She also found purpose in nonprofit involvement. She currently serves on a number of Professional Advisory Committees. As a result of her parents being Holocaust survivors, she became active with the Anti-defamation League and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Additionally, her love of the arts directed her to support the Boca Raton Museum of Art. She enjoys the community she lives in and participates in the Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce and is an alumna of the Leadership Palm Beach County program.
Susan and Barry have known each other for almost 15 years. She loves assisting him expand his team and his practice. She enjoys developing relationships; she has a curiosity about the people she meets; and she likes seeing people succeed and thrive.
She also knows first hand how planning services can change lives. Thanks to timely advice she received, she managed to plan for her own mother’s health and security. Susan was able to keep her in her own home, keep her job, and set aside money to provide private care when her mother outlived her home healthcare policy. She feels truly blessed to have been able to do that for her. She’d like to be able to educate others to plan for their families.
Susan resides in Boca Raton and enjoys yoga and the arts.
