Susan Shulman is General Counsel and Director of Operations for Metrist Partners. Susan focuses on operations and business development. Prior to joining Metrist Partners, Susan was the Pro Bono Initiative Director at the Public Interest Law Initiative. In that role, Susan worked with lawyers at law firms and corporations to facilitate increased participation in pro bono legal work and to focus greater attention on the unmet legal needs of low-income individuals. Susan consulted with over 70 law firms and corporations on launching and reinvigorating their pro bono programs. She also succeeded in tapping previously untapped resources for pro bono work, including transactional attorneys and attorneys at corporations, and fostered the first pro bono partnerships between law firms and corporate legal departments in Chicago. Her efforts resulted in a 16% increase in pro bono work by law firm attorneys, and a 156% increase in pro work by attorneys at corporations.
When she's not helping clients with their online marketing efforts, Kelly can most likely be found contemplating her next DIY project or yammering on about Mercury Retrograde. A Jill-of-all-trades of sorts, Kelly brings her advertising and integrated marketing communications experience to Metrist's team, along with her outgoing personality and love of making people laugh.
Anne-Marie is a mom of three active kids and the owner of a rescue dog named Murphy. Murphy’s breed isn't exactly known but he looks like a Border Collie, a smart herding breed. Anne-Marie and her dog’s breed have very similar jobs. Murphy keeps the sheep going in the right direction. Anne-Marie does this for Metrist Partners. When Anne Marie is not reporting on customer results or managing an online advertising account, she is managing the projects we have at Metrist Partners, she keeps us all moving in the right direction and makes sure nothing gets lost or buried.
