For the past 17 years, Susan served as Facility Director of a progressive, multi-physician podiatry practice and surgical center in Michigan. She began her career in Connecticut working as a data processing manager and growing into the position of assistant treasurer for the 10-million-dollar corporation.

Outside of work, Susan enjoys family time, gardening, knitting, reading, the outdoors, and learning new things.
