Sue Ryan Goodman, DBA, CFA, CPA, is a seasoned financial professional with over 30 years of finance, investment, and accounting experience. After “retiring” from her New York City investment job in 2013, Dr. Goodman began working with nonprofits and was an interim executive director of one for nearly a year in 2016/17. This led her to write her dissertation on nonprofit governance; however, finance and accounting are her passions.
Dr. Goodman earned her DBA from the Muma College of Business at the University of South Florida. Additionally, she has an MBA from Rutgers University and a BS in Accounting from Marquette University and is a Chartered Financial Analyst and a Certified Public Accountant. She is currently on the board of directors of the Girl Scouts of West Central Florida, where she also serves on the Finance Committee. Dr. Goodman is also active in the CFA Society of Tampa Bay.
A native of Washington DC, she and her husband Mark moved to Florida in late 2017 and do not miss the snow or cold of New Jersey. When not working on her computer or in her garden, Dr. Goodman can be found running along the St Petersburg waterfront, working out at Crunch, or swimming around the St Pete Pier every Sunday morning at sunrise. She ran her first half-marathon in late 2021 and has signed up for another in 2022. She has two adult children, one of whom just graduated from vet school, so she’s not the only Dr. Goodman in the family!
