Susan grew up in the Triangle and earned a degree in special education from East Carolina University. She taught and developed after school programs in eastern NC and Durham City Schools for a number of years before joining the American Red Cross as a blood recruiter and program director. She returned to education as part of the administrative team of the Visiting International Faculty Program in Chapel Hill. Susan’s winding career path brought her to Carolina Law after serving in a similar position at a law school down the road. She and her husband live in Raleigh with her adult brother with a developmental disability and spend as many weekends as possible in the mountains visiting their daughter in Asheville or hiding away in their tiny cabin off the Blue Ridge Parkway.
