Susan Baida
Co-Founder and President

Susan knows first-hand the challenges of caring for aging parents and family with serious illnesses. While working full time, she helped care for her father-in-law who suffered from Parkinson’s disease and faced the frustrations and stress that came with managing his care.  That experience was the inspiration behind eCareDiary, as a way to help family caregivers cope with the challenges of care coordination.  She is considered a sandwich generation caregiver as she coordinates care not only for her aging mother and father but also her three young children under the age of 6.  Her experiences as a family caregiver made her realize that there is great opportunity for better online resources, a supportive community and educational information. Prior to eCareDiary, she was Vice President of Marketing for Starwood Hotels and spent the prior 15 years as a brand executive for Estee Lauder Companies and Avon, Inc.  She redirected her career and is passionate about helping family caregivers and elders age with dignity.  As the Co-founder and President, Susan is responsible for day-to-day operations and marketing.  She also oversees business development for eCareDiary’s licensing services.
