Susan Cisco is passionate about dance and the ability it has to impact someone’s life. She has been a lover of Tap Dance for over 25 years. When not dancing or attending a performance, Susan is a consultant and speaker on records and information management.  Susan had the good fortune of meeting Tony Merriwether in a tap class when he was 11 years old. Since then, she has followed Tony’s transition from rank beginner to an accomplished and well-respected professional dancer. She has been in the audience countless times watching Tony’s performances in Texas with Tapestry Dance Company and in Zach Scott Theater’s production of “Sophisticated Ladies,” and even as far away as New Hampshire when he appeared in Sarah Savelli's national tour of "Wonderland." Susan and Tony became close friends and conceived the StepSure concept more than 10 years ago in order to give underprivileged children the opportunity to learn about Tap Dance.  Tony met his wife Emilie Koenig, a fellow dancer, in 2013. The StepSure duet soon became a trio, bringing an even greater passion and expertise to the mission of inspiring lives through StepSure and the power of dance.


Susan has been nationally recognized as a leader in her field and currently works for Gimmal, a technology firm. She served as the Records Management Officer for the Oil and Gas Division at the Texas Railroad Commission, one of the most important energy-related regulatory bodies in the U.S. During her concurrent tenure as a lecturer at the University of Texas at Austin’s School of Information, her class project won the Britt Literary Award for best feature article appearing in the Information Management Journal. She holds a Master of Library Science degree and a Ph.D. in Library and Information Science from the University of Texas at Austin, is a Certified Records Manager, and a Fellow of ARMA International, the Records and Information Management profession’s highest honor.
