27 Oct Meet the California Document Preparers’ Team: Susan Lenser
Susan Lenser joined California Document Preparers’ Walnut Creek team in the fall of 2016. She grew up in Orinda and graduated from the University of Southern California with a degree in Broadcast Journalism. Her first job out of college was that of TV news reporter for NBC in Idaho Falls, Idaho, followed by a job at Santa Rosa’s KFTY.
Tired of a steady diet of bad news
The news business taught Susan that it’s bad news that sells, and it was time for a career change. She began writing proposals for a major tech firm in Los Angeles, then joined Mary Kay Cosmetics and found that she loved selling cosmetics, and her business took off. She quit proposal-writing and worked for Mary Kay for 15 years—and yes, she has driven several pink Cadillacs!
By 2016, Susan decided she was tired of her home-based business and wanted more interaction with people and began looking for employment opportunities. “California Document Preparers was the perfect fit: constant interaction with clients and other members of the team make the job fun and stimulating. I enjoy helping our clients get their Living Trusts and other legal documents for a great price. We are really offering a special service here—we’re able to make the legal-document-preparation process painless and straightforward.”
Still doing Mary Kay . . .
When not at work, Susan still works her Mary Kay business and spends time with her parents and sister, who live in the Bay Area. She enjoys hiking, playing board games, movies and seeing live music. “I look forward to coming to work. Every day brings new challenges and opportunities to help our clients.”
