Suzanne Wouk has been an eBay seller since 1997 (when it was called AuctionWeb!). Frustrated with the time-consuming eBay posting process, Suzanne tried every new tool and service that offered a solution to the delays and complexities of posting. Since none were good enough, she decided to fix the problem herself and enrolled in the Silicon Valley incubator program, The Founder Institute, where she launched SnapPost.
Although born in the USA, Suzanne grew up in the Middle East and served as a non-commissioned officer in the Israeli Navy. Later, during her studies at UCLA, she worked as an actress in various Hollywood films and TV shows.
But, marketing and entrepreneurship are her true calling. In the late 90’s, she was one of the first “internet marketers,” teaching Affiliate and Search Marketing to help nonprofits raise money through her website FundraisingMom.com.
She is on the Board of Directors of a few nonprofits including the hospice support network and RahaKudo.
