Susan joined the staff at First after a career in the world of technology start-ups and consulting. She is responsible for "the building and the bucks" at First—coordinating use of the facility, overseeing the church’s investments and business contracts, managing office systems, and supervising property maintenance and renovation projects.
Having grown up at First, Susan brings together a love of the people and the place. Her volunteer roles at First have included teaching English to second-language learners, working in the church kitchen, and leading a small group bible study. Susan loves long discussions with friends over a home-cooked meal, a good read, Mediterranean cuisine, a good tune, baking, and a good cup of coffee.
What’s Susan’s favorite downtown spot? "Anywhere in the Skyway. I often run into someone I worked with in the business world, and love to reconnect. It's a place I see the many riches and the many needs of the people in our city. And even after years roaming the Skyway, I still find new ways to get lost and new places to check out."
