Executive Leadership

Janet Donovan - Chief Executive Officer

Janet is a retired U.S. Navy Two Star Rear Admiral and former Deputy Commander in the Office of the Judge Advocate General (JAG) of the Navy with more than 20 years of executive experience in strategy development, talent management and collaboration. She has completed numerous professional development and executive training courses in strategic planning, strategic communication and innovation, coalition-building, finance and accounting, cyber security, risk management and ethics.

Janet received her law degree from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, and Bachelor of Arts in Spanish from The College of Wooster in Wooster, Ohio. She has seen firsthand the character-building impact that Girl Scouts can make in the lives of young women, and believes Girl Scouting provides a distinctive experience to prepare our next generation of confident and capable leaders.  

Suzanne Moore, MSHR - Chief Operating Officer

Suzanne has over 15 years of Girl Scouting experience holding both volunteer and staff positions, including Camp Director, Resident Camp Director, Outdoor Program Manager, and Regional Director for GSHPA’s north, northeast and west regions. She was appointed to the role of Chief Operating Officer in March 2015.

Becoming a camp counselor gave Suzanne the opportunity to try new things in a safe environment, surrounded by strong women who encouraged her to continue achieving beyond what she ever thought possible. The various positions she has held at GSHPA have enabled her to learn what Girl Scouts means to volunteers, girls, and parents, and what keeps them engaged in Girl Scouting. These experiences inspire her work at GSHPA and influence her efforts towards growing both the quantity and quality of opportunities for all girls within our footprint.

She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Secondary English Education from Penn State University and a Master’s of Science degree in Human Resources from the University of Scranton.
