Before law school, Ms. Susskind was a senior policy consultant and media director for IVC Media, LLC, a non-partisan political consulting firm in California, where she managed campaigns, including California Senate and State Assembly races.  She also helped draft and pass legislation reforming the San Diego elections and led award-winning public-affairs campaigns.
