Growing up in Pauls Valley, Oklahoma, Suzanne McClain Atwood earned her undergraduate degree in Letters from the University of Oklahoma and her Juris Doctorate from the University of Oklahoma College of Law in 1983.  Following graduation from law school, she accepted a position as an Assistant District Attorney for District Attorney District 17, covering McCurtain, Choctaw, and Pushmataha Counties in far southeastern Oklahoma.  In 1989, she joined DAC as Staff Attorney and three years later was promoted to Assistant Executive Coordinator.  In March, 1997, the five member District Attorneys Council appointed her Executive Coordinator of the District Attorneys Council.

Upon assuming the position as Executive Coordinator, Atwood remarked, "I have dedicated my career to working with and for prosecutors and to improving the criminal justice system in Oklahoma.  I am proud to serve the District Attorneys of this state and those that work with them, and I look forward to the challenge of serving as your Coordinator."
