Sue Gray

Sue Gray

Consultant

Sue began her tenure as our operations specialist, quickly becoming the pulse of Peak’s day to day schedule – and the glue that held us all together. However, it was apparent that her skill at managing internal operations was easily transitioned to better serve our clients – so her role has been refined to a client-facing consultant. She brings a diverse set of skills to the table, having worked in retail, hospitality, healthcare, education and as a volunteer secretary of her local PTA, and is thriving in her consulting role.
