ABOUT TSG PARK CITY EDITOR/OWNER SUZANNE HARPER DILDY:
Suzanne is a native of New Orleans, Louisiana, and graduated from Louisiana State University with a degree in English Literature. Her career path spans 20 years of working in sales, marketing, and public relations. She gained extensive experience in the city guide and advertising industry as an Editor and Account Manager for VIP Publishing/WHERE Magazine and as an Account Manager for CitySearch.com.
Suzanne moved to Park City with her husband, Gary, after Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and fell in love with the mountain lifestyle. In June of 2007, she gave birth to her daughter, Sophie. In 2011, the Dildys relocated to Houston, where they spent six happy years, but longed for the beauty and close-knit community that they enjoyed in Park City. In 2017, Suzanne and her family moved back to their beloved mountain town, which they plan to make their “forever” home.
As a self-proclaimed advocate for local businesses, Suzanne is thrilled to bring The Scout Guide to Park City. She has been a longtime admirer of TSG, and loves highlighting the talented local entrepreneurs, artists, and visionaries that make Park City so unique.
Suzanne enjoys spending time with her husband, daughter, and Golden-Doodle, Daisy; loves tennis, travel, and entertaining friends; and is an aspiring screenwriter. She is still trying to learn to ski adequately, but loves snow-shoeing, hiking, camping, and soaking in all the beauty that Utah offers.
SUZANNE’S THREE FAVORITE REASONS TO VISIT PARK CITY:
- The outdoors. “Park City is a year-round playground for outdoor enthusiasts. Our world-famous powder brings thousands of visitors to our little ski town each year. Summers in Park City are nothing short of magical; with hiking, biking, outdoor music festivals, bustling farmers markets, and glorious weather—which make it very hard to leave for a summer vacation!”
- Arts and culture. “Park City is home to The Sundance Film Festival, The Deer Valley Music Festival, The Kimball Arts Festival, and countless other cultural events. The vibrant arts and entertainment scene here is top notch, with venues such as The Eccles Center/Park City Institute and The Egyptian Theatre, where my daughter performs in the YouthTheatre Company.”
- The community. “The Park City community is amazing! Parkites care deeply and passionately about what is going on in our town, and work really hard to make a difference in the community. This is a big reason why Park City is consistently rated as one of the best places to live in America.”
