Susan Lewis Solomont is an award-winning entrepreneur, philanthropist, and community leader who has advised and worked with WGBH, Tufts University, Berklee College of Music, and many other institutions. From 2009 to 2013, she lived in Madrid with her husband, Alan D. Solomont, the United States ambassador to Spain and Andorra. Lost and Found in Spain, Tales of An Ambassador's Wife chronicles her experiences as a former career woman forced to reinvent herself as a diplomat’s spouse, making "a strong case for better defining the roles of diplomatic spouses, to say nothing of paying them for their work” (Kirkus Reviews).
