Suzanne Stanford is the president and CEO of My Internet Safety Coach, an Internet safety education training business in Newport Beach, CA.
In 2007, Suzanne authored proposed federal legislation: "Parents Against Predators Act" (PAPA) that will be introduced in the United States Senate and House of Representatives in the following months. Additionally, she is launching a national grassroots Internet safety education campaign.
Suzanne's background in the Internet Safety Education business began in 1998. From 1999 to 2001, she focused her time raising awareness to Members of Congress of the need for Internet safety education in K-12 schools, on behalf of a start-up Internet safety education foundation, I-Safe America, Inc. By 2004, she was a key executive with the foundation and catapulted this non-profit into an $11.5M federally funded, nationally recognized entity.
Working with federal and locally elected representatives, state and district superintendents of schools, state attorney generals, and law enforcement, Suzanne developed, planned and implemented the launch of a 5th through 12th grade school and community based Internet safety education program in all 50 states. Discovering that the program could not be made available to the students attending the U.S. K-12 Department of Defense Education Activity schools (also known as the DoDEA schools), she acquired one million dollars from the Department of Defense for the inclusion of the program in these U.S. military base schools worldwide.
In 2002, she was awarded an "Internet Safety and America's Youth" Congressional Merit Award by Congresswoman, Sheila Jackson Lee. Later, Representative David Vitter selected her as one of ten American Women of Leadership.
Suzanne publishes online Internet safety information and is a speaker, trainer, and consultant specializing in responsible Internet use and how to avoid being victimized by online predators. She also serves as the Internet safety consultant for the Children's Educational Network; sits on the Board of Directors for Challenge Day, an international NGO whose experiential programs enable children and teens to see others beyond prejudice for the common goal of feeling safe, loved and celebrated; and is the President of the Founders Guild Board for Casa Teresa.
Professional associations include: National Association of Female Executives (NAFE); National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO); Business Women's Network (BWN); eWomen's Network; and the "4 You Network". Her civic contributions include spearheading a "Rolling Suitcase Drive" for victims of Hurricane Katrina and Rita which netted in excess of 20,000 suitcases; and is currently working on a humanitarian project for two missions in Africa.
Suzanne is a native of Southern California and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Film and Television Production from UCLA, whereupon she enjoyed a long and successful career in the Entertainment Industry prior to her current work. She is a member of The Director's Guild of America.
