Philanthropy & Nonprofits

SUSAN TOWLER

VICE PRESIDENT, FLORIDA BLUE FOUNDATION, JACKSONVILLE

The foundation, founded in 2001, supports more than 400 non-profits through programs that focus on health care solutions. Towler was displaced during a reorganization just four years into her career, “but the company offered to hire me back as an independent consultant. Starting my own PR firm at 25 provided invaluable lessons and opportunities that led me to my personal/professional life today.”

EDUCATION University of Florida (BS)
SOMETHING SURPRISING I can be a bit of a pack rat, especially when it comes to photos and memorabilia. Right now, I have 23,777 photos on my iPhone. Thinking that might be a tad too many.
FAVORITE VACATION Two-week cruise in the Mediterranean Sea, from Barcelona to Venice. Favorite place: Montenegro!
STAYING FIT I walk our French bulldog, Mr. Pickles. And I love to dance like no one’s watching!
