Sue Bierer, originally from Park Ridge, Illinois, was born with a love for horses, and has been a life-long equestrian. In 1979, she packed her horse and moved to Wellington, Florida, excited to ride in the sunshine and delve into her work at the elite Palm Beach Polo & Country Club. Sue first worked in public relations, and then in club operations, handling arrangements for VIP groups and club social activities. She was dynamic in early Wellington development and activities, as well as in the movement to incorporate the Village of Wellington. As an avid equestrian in her early days, Sue participated in Foxhunting with the Palm Beach Hunt throughout Wellington and Loxahatchee, as well as hunter/jumper competitions and amateur polo matches, often joined by her late husband, local banker, Leonard Bierer.
In 1987, Sue returned to the teaching profession at Wellington Elementary, where she specialized in math and science. She retired in 2012. Sue has enjoyed involvement in several civic and educational organizations over the years, and is thrilled to hold a position on the Board of Directors for the newly established Wellington Historical Society.
