Susie serves as the Office Manager at Dallas Afterschool, a nonprofit focused on improving the quality of afterschool programs in our community. She is a native Texan but graduated high school in Oklahoma and has volunteered with various nonprofit animal rescues in both Oklahoma and Texas for over 15 years. In previous years, she served as the PTA Secretary at Seagoville Elementary School in Dallas ISD. Outside of raising her 7-year-old son and 15-year-old daughter, she is working towards her second degree, a Bachelors of Applied Arts and Sciences with a concentration in psychology. Susie has a keen interest in the Equity in Education movement and has a calling to work with the poverty stricken and homeless population. She hopes that in the near future her passion for helping in both of these areas will align.
