Susan joined the Dear Jack team in December of 2017. She was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. She has a BS in Education from the University of Missouri – Columbia, and spent the next five years teaching high school students with disabilities in both North St. Louis and then Middleton, Wisconsin. She quit work to be a stay-at-home mom when her first child was born.
Susan spent years both volunteering and working for multiple nonprofits, even helping to found several. From school based groups to rock and roll organizations, her experiences helped her hone a variety of skills including event planning, driving significant financial growth, and volunteer recruitment and training.
She loves spending time with her family – her husband Jeff and two kids, 19 and 17 and her dogs. As she approaches being an empty nester, she is truly looking forward to working at Dear Jack and bringing her skills and experience to a cause that has significantly impacted her life.
