Susan Dench – President

Susan_smallSusan Dench is the founder of the Informed Women’s Network. Recognizing that many women are tired of “politics as usual,” Susan decided to take action and develop strategies that are innovating the way fiscally responsible women and politics intersect, nurturing and encouraging like-minded women in fun, energetic gatherings where views can be expressed in a supportive environment and then translated into practical solutions that produce results.

A graduate of Northeastern University, Susan’s professional background is in marketing, having worked earlier in her career for various corporate entities (including GE and HP) and later as a marketing and branding consultant. Her personal experiences spurred her to author The Responsibility Rules: Living A Self-Disciplined Life in a Self-Entitled World and several other books, landing her on Fox & Friends and numerous radio shows. A lively speaker, she develops connectors, communicators and rainmakers in workshops for those who want to shake up the status quo.

As her family will be only too happy to confirm, Susan is never afraid to give her opinion if asked (and usually if not asked).  Active in her community, she lives on the coast of Maine with her exceedingly indulgent husband and admittedly spoiled dogs in a charming 1920’s house, which is in an ongoing state of loving renovation. She can be reached at sdench [@] informedwomen.org.

OUR BOARD MEMBERS – Seeking talent for Treasurer, Achieve President, Speakers

The Honorable Heather Sirocki

Heather Sirocki SMRepresentative Heather Sirocki is a busy multi-tasking wife, mother of three sons, dental hygienist and elected official in the Maine House.

Heather gained firsthand exposure to the hard work and long hours needed to succeed in a small business while living on the family farm and helping in the family grain store business growing up. She’s consistently battled other politicians who are trying to tax-and-spend their way out of tough economic times instead of making the tough but fiscally responsible decisions needed for a healthy and vibrant economic environment. A champion of business, education, the needs of the poor and families, Heather is a strong supporter of constitutionally-based, affordable government, free market principles, and the rule of law.

An active part of her community (in her spare time), Heather volunteers for her church and several other local organizations. She lives in Scarborough, Maine with her wonderful husband and their high school senior.
