Susan Brichler Trujillo has been elected to a three-year term as chair of the board of directors for the Girl Scouts–Arizona Cactus-Pine Council.
GSACPC serves more than 10,000 girls in grades K-12 in more than 90 communities across central and northern Arizona. It also includes more than 6,000 adult volunteers who serve as leaders, trainers, consultants and board members, according to a release.
Trujillo was a Girl Scout in Phoenix, and her mother served as her troop leader.
"I vividly remember camp, sleeping on the ground in tents and making dolls out of cornhusks. I learned how to ride a horse at Camp Maripai,” Trujillo said.
“My mom talks about dropping me off at camp and, a week later, seeing a different girl walk down the gravel road to get in the car. She always felt that I returned more confident, and she was right."
A University of Notre Dame Law School graduate, Trujillo will divide her duties as GSACPC board chair with her role as a partner in the Phoenix office of Quarles & Brady LLC, where she also serves as chair of its Phoenix Health & Life Sciences Practice Group.
"Susan has been actively contributing to this community for years, and her work revolves around serving others,” GSACPC co-CEO Christina Spicer said.
“Her role as the board chair of GSACPC is a testament to her commitment to helping girls change the world.”
