Nominating Committee Chair
When Suzanne’s children started returning to the nest less and less, she and her husband began to explore their wider community and met a Phoenixville Area Time Bank member who was running the PATB booth at the Farmer’s Market. They were drawn to the member’s passion and the Time Bank concept and several months later, they were members. Suzanne feels that the exchanges that happen through the PATB develop social interaction, shared understanding, and a greater appreciation for one another.
Suzanne Frederick holds an MBA from the University of Connecticut, a BS from Albany State University and a Paralegal Certificate from Villanova University.

Suzanne and her husband Frank enjoy long hikes, yoga, bicycle rides and spending time with their four children. Her favorite game is Scrabble and as a kid, her family would use it to connect with one another at the end of the day. Suzanne now approaches life knowing that there is still so much more to learn. After a trip to Italy, Suzanne and her husband returned with a new appreciation for travel throughout the US and did so in as small an RV as they could find. The RV world and the people in it have allowed her to appreciate a simpler side of life that she did not know existed.
