Sue Cranston, CEO/Executive Director
Start Date: 1999

Sue has extensive experience handling animals from tiny tree frogs, sugar gliders, hedgehogs, mink, raccoons, fox, coyotes, river otter, bobcats and lynx to big cats, bears, wolves and wolfdogs. She gained a large amount of experience and knowledge in animal care, cage construction, behavior and training by volunteering in the sanctuary and rescue field for years before co-founding Indigo Mountain Nature Center in 2000 with Carol Scarborough. Her experience and background in the business world helped to prepare Sue for the many business management and marketing tasks required of her job as Executive Director.

She holds certifications in veterinary nutrition, chemical immobilization and animal behavior. This training has enhanced her abilities to provide excellent care to the Indigo Mountain animals.

As the President of the Board of Directors and the Executive Director, Sue is responsible for the general business management of the center in addition to the day to day care of a number of canines, cats, black bears and pocket pets.
