The Team

"Not only does Sue model excitement and love of place, but she surrounds herself with a wonderful staff of volunteers and interns who are highly capable and enthusiastic."
-- Christie Nold, School Programs Coordinator, Shelburne Farms, Shelburne, Vt.

She lives in Jericho, Vermont. More information


Phil Sharpsteen, Board President

Phil’s interests can be summed up with the phrase “the 3B’s”—not Bach, Beethoven and Brahms, but Bach, Bridge and Bluegrass.  Also, Phil can be relied upon to enjoy any opportunity to experience fine dining.  Phil has been volunteering in the Keeping Track office supervising all financial matters, including payroll, invoices, taxes and preparation of budget information for general purposes and grant applications.  He also serves as President of Keeping Track’s Board.


Bobbie Summers, Technical Support Manager

Bobbie attributes her love of the natural world as a primary reason for working for Keeping Track.  She has been an avid outdoors person all her life, but she also enjoys volunteering in animal rescue work and caring for her own seven rescue dogs.  Sue fondly describes her as the "Mother Teresa of homeless dogs."  She is an avid member of Dragonheart Vermont, a cancer support organization that competes in dragon boat races, and raises funds for cancer patients.  Bobbie also spends her time as a hospice and Meals On Wheels volunteer.  She is responsible for maintaining Keeping Track's computer and photo-editing needs, such as working with Sue to create our PowerPoint presentations.
