“What I love most about working for A Wider Circle is that each day you see people’s lives change so dramatically in such a short amount of time.”
Susan is A Wider Circle’s Director of Agency Partnerships, overseeing the team that works with the 350 government and nonprofit agencies that refer their clients here for assistance. Susan graduated from Southern Methodist University with degrees in Psychology and Human Rights. After teaching English as a Second Language both in Rwanda and locally in Silver Spring, she decided to pursue an interest in the social work field. Susan originally came to us in 2013 as a volunteer, but we soon realized what a powerful force she could be in the movement and asked her to join our team as a staff member. Three promotions later, Susan remains a committed, heartful, and important leader here – and in the movement to end poverty.
