Susan’s background from her website:

Born and raised in the Florida Keys, it has been my good fortune to be surrounded by tropical hardwood hammock, the Atlantic Ocean and Florida Bay.  My mother, Donna N. Sprunt, now retired, was the owner and operator of a native plant nursery (Florida Keys Native Nursery, Inc.) for over eighteen years.  My Father Alexander “Sandy” Sprunt, IV, followed the footsteps of his father, Alexander Sprunt, Jr. as a life-long activist in conservation through the Research Department of the National Audubon Society in Tavernier, Florida. 

I attended the University of Florida for my undergraduate studies with a major in Horticulture. I returned to the Florida Keys and opened an environmental consulting business primarily conducting habitat delineations, environmental assessments, and preparing restoration plans.  While maintaining the business I attended graduate school at Florida International University  in landscape architecture with special emphasis on natural areas planning.  I completed a doctoral program in botany at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.
