Susie's successes run the gamut across issues impacting children, youth and families. Examples include including successfully lobbying for and helping implement the District's children's budget and lobbying for the requirement to create a citywide child abuse and neglect prevention plan. Other examples are convening a large group to support a tobacco settlement plan that addressed the causes and results of tobacco use, and generally calling attention to the need to invest in children and youth.
Susie received her Master of Social Work from the School of Social Work at Howard University. Her focus was on the macro track in the area of children and families. This work followed receipt of a BA from Hollins University (then Hollins College) and a high school diploma from the rigorous academic program provided by the Loomis Chaffee School.
Susie has been recognized from a number of local organizations, including the Consortium for Child Welfare and the National Kidney Foundation of the National Capital Area.
Since late 2009, Susie has consulted with a number of DC-based nonprofits on budget and policy projects and authored the blog Susie's Budget and Policy Corner. Susie is available to work with new clients; to inquire about working with Susie, call (301) 832-2339 or email her.
