Often working two jobs simultaneously, Susan has been a nurse educator for over 35 years.

Dr. Susie, as her students refer to her, was always involved with youth – from teaching Sunday School classes to Fine Arts Festivals (FAF) and as a nurse at youth camps. She and her husband Dale are involved in the SEU community as well as their church home at Victory Church. They have four adult children and seven grandchildren located in Maryland, Virginia, and New York.
It has been Dr. Susie’s dream for Southeastern to have a nursing program preparing the next generation to meet the healthcare needs of individuals, families, and communities (locally & globally) because nurses are in a unique position to accomplish those tasks as they rely upon the Holy Spirit and the call of the Lord as written in Luke 4:18.
