Ann Arbor SPARK CEO Podcasts: Conversations on Economic Opportunity capture the flavor of my one-on-one conversations with over one hundred key economic leaders in the region, including private sector CEOs, elected and appointed public sector leaders, and the executive leadership of key non-profit and academic institutions. The podcast series is designed to not only highlight that expertise, but also make it available to others who could benefit from the wisdom those business leaders can share.

Dr. Susan Martin is Eastern Michigan University's first woman president. Prior to joining EMU, Dr. Martin served as provost and vice chancellor of academic affairs at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, and enjoyed an 18-year career at Grand Valley State University. Dr. Martin earned a Ph.D. in business/accounting and MBA from Michigan State University, and a bachelor's degree from Central Michigan University.

In my conversation with Dr. Martin, she discusses EMU's educational accomplishments, higher wage occupation opportunities, and advice for students and job seekers searching for employment in the county. She also talks about why she loves Ypsilanti, Michigan.
