Susan was born and raised in the Cleveland area. After a poignant experience volunteering in high school, Susan decided to pursue a career in education and received a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Wright State University. Passionately, Susan worked in K-8 education in Illinois and Ohio, until 2010, when looking for a new challenge, she decided to return to school for a Leadership in Higher Education master’s degree program at Baldwin Wallace University.
Always looking for the "ah ha" moment in education, Susan continues to work with students at the college level, to assist them in achieving their dreams through education and becoming lifelong learners.
Outside of the campus and classroom, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, amateur landscape photography, and reading.
