Susannah welcomes her opportunity to return to NW Arkansas to serve at the Sunshine School as Director of Development. Born in Texas, she is a graduate of the University of Arkansas with a Bachelor of Science in Education with a concentration in Recreation and Event Management. She could call the hogs in her sleep!
Her love for fundraising began at the U of A when she co-chaired the Up Till Dawn fundraising event for St. Jude’s Research Hospital, raising close to $300,000. That opportunity led to her selection for the Summer in the City program in Washington, DC, where she worked on the fundraising team for a Presidential Campaign in 2004.
Susannah has spent the past 10 years with the Arkansas Pharmacists Association as Director of Membership and Meetings in Little Rock. For the last two years of that time, she focused on COVID-19 vaccine distribution and worked closely with the CDC at the national and state levels. While working at the APA, she also was in-charge of heading up a Capital Campaign for 3.5 million dollars for a new state-of-the-art building.
She has been married 11 years and she and her husband, Tommy are fun loving parents to their rescue dog, Bailey. Susannah loves to travel, craft, binge watch shows, and spend time with her nieces and nephews in her spare time.
