Today’s spotlight: Susan Chetlin

Of counsel

Burch & Cracchiolo

Background: Chetlin is a registered patent attorney focusing on intellectual property protection strategies (patent, trademark, copyright, trade secret).  She is immediate past cChair of the Shea Group, a self-directed, invitation-only group of business executives, leaders and consultants who engage on business issues in Arizona and beyond.

Professional advice: “Be thoughtful.  That’s useful on a number of levels.  To me it means, think about how your work and actions affect your clients, colleagues, adversaries, decision-makers and yourself.  And, it means be thoughtful in how you do your work – think first about how to solve the problem before taking action and be deliberate in how you go about solving the problem.”

Lesson learned in 2020: Let go of what is really not important and what I cannot control.  Concentrate on what is really important and what is within my power to change.  These things are true now, more than ever.”

Surprising fact:I once ‘caught big air’ on my snowboard by mistakenly going off a jump hidden in the trees and landed it.”
