Susan R. Goodwin

Vice Chair, Wolfeboro

Susan is a lifelong summer resident of Lake Wentworth. She has lived in Wolfeboro year-round since she and her husband, Peter, retired in 2008.

With a degree in biology from Wellesley College, she worked for many years at the Sloan-Kettering Institute of Cancer Research in New York. And she then taught chemistry at The Kent School in Kent, Connecticut. Since retirement, Susan has focused on her passion for lakes and protecting the lake experience by serving on several boards beside NH LAKES – the Loon Preservation Committee, New Hampshire Audubon, and Lakes Region Curling Association. She also chairs the Wolfeboro Milfoil Control Committee. She took part in the New Hampshire Coverts Program in 2019.

When not at meetings or working as a Lake Host, she enjoys traveling, hiking (long ago completed the Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada), kayaking, x-country skiing, and curling. Susan originally served on the NH LAKES board from 2009 through 2017, serving as board chair from 2012 through 2016. She rejoined the board in the late fall of 2018.
