Susan R. Posterro, Firm Administrator

Fuller, Rosenberg, Palmer & Believeau

 

Years in field? 15

 

What do you most enjoy about your job?

The challenge of taking stressful business situations and turning them around to help advance my firm forward.

 

What is your biggest challenge at work?  The human element and how that impacts the needs of the firm. Life is stressful for everyone and many times that stress carries into the workplace and then effects work product and workflow.

 

When you're not at work, you like to…? I spend most of my free time involved with non-profit work. I am the Creative Director and Family Liaison for Tiny Sparrow Foundation. The Tiny Sparrow Foundation is a national non-profit based out of Dallas, Texas that provides lasting memories through the beautiful art of photography to the families with children who are facing life threatening/terminal illnesses. With the help of photographers nationwide, our Foundation is able to give a beautiful album that will carry the love, joy and everlasting memory of each individual family. My mom and I also co-own Binkeez - a baby blanket business where we give forward locally by donating a blanket for each baby that is admitted to

the UMASS NICU. In 2010, I spent all my vacation time traveling the country competing in marathons, triathlons and extreme races to raise money for the Tara Bean Foundation. Tara was a 9 year old girl from Shrewsbury, MA that very suddenly and tragically lost her life to brain cancer. I have learned that if you have been given the gift of good health, you need to pay that forward for those that have not been given that gift.

 

Favorite T.V. Show? Law and Order (is that what working in legal for 15 years does to one?)

 

Last book read?  Well I read every night, but not the typical book. I spend each night reading through our Tiny Sparrow Families Book of Life via their Caring Bridge updates. The last book I did read that impacted me the most sits on my nightstand - The Last Lecture.
