SPECIAL THANK YOU to UK Consul General in Boston Susie Kitchens

Susie Kitchens arrived in Boston to become Britain’s Consul General in August 2012. She is here with her US-born husband, Michael, and their two children, living on historic Beacon Hill. Prior to this assignment, Susie was the Deputy High Commissioner at the British High Commission in Tanzania. Susie’s diplomatic career has also included postings in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London (on bilateral relations with Latin America, Consular policy and on the United Nations Security Council) and also as Political Officer at the British Embassy in Guatemala. Susie’s academic record includes an MA in Human Sciences from Oxford University (Lady Margaret Hall), and an MSc in Public Health from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Before becoming a diplomat, Susie worked in international development promoting children’s health via school improvement through the Aga Khan Foundation in Pakistan and then with CARE International in El Salvador. Susie and her dual nationality family are delighted to have this opportunity to live in the United States, particularly in New England with its historical and contemporary links to the UK. Susie’s paternal grandfather served as vice-consul in both New York and San Francisco during World War II, initiating the family’s diplomatic ties with the USA.
