Susan has served on staff at Shades more than 35 years. She provides leadership and direction to our women's ministry. Women are simple, yet complicated; brave but unsure; adventurous but cautious; transparent but hidden; confident but uncertain; strong but gentle. Yet we all yearn to love and be loved and once we fully grasp the love of God for us, we become unleashed to impact our world. Susan has been married to her dearest friend and longtime boyfriend, David for 37 years. He is a recently retired firefighter, and we are navigating this next new chapter of life with a lot of excitement and anticipation for what God has next for us. We have one daughter, Blythe, who is a special needs teacher for children ages three and four.
