While in high school in Bedford, Suz spent free time volunteering at local nursing homes. She has always loved the challenge and variety of caring for others and became a Certified Nursing Assistant through study at IU — in addition to studying music and fine arts. She worked as a Medicaid caseworker for 10 years in this area before following the lead of a church mentor to become a nursing home administrator. Suz now lives in Bloomington’s near-westside neighborhood with her beloved dogs Gary, Daisy and Tilly.
“I love the challenge and the new changes in assisted living care. This is my life’s work. I feel that it was chosen for me. I am thankful.”
