Susan Vernon is an expat living and working In Delhi for the last five years as a teacher at the American Embassy School. Prior to alighting in Delhi, she owned and managed a small boutique hotel and spa in Taos, New Mexico, for nearly twenty-nine years. Among other accolades, the hotel made the Conde Naste Gold List for best properties in the USA. Ms. Vernon had a mid-life event that caused a major course change. Rather than resist and bemoan her fate, she chartered a new course that landed her in Delhi, where she has brought a generative spirit to what she does. A graduate of Yale University with graduate credit hours in the University of California at Berkeley School of Business MBA program, Ms. Vernon believes in education of the whole person as the key to solving the countless problems humanity faces.
