Professionally involved in the field of health for over thirty years, Susan says, “We need to change our prospective on accessible healthcare. Instead of looking at it as a national right or as evidence of over reach of the federal government we need to see it as an obstacle to our countries growth. Our country is one of the best countries for entrepreneurship, but lack of portable, affordable healthcare is like cement shoes on our economy, dragging and slowing its growth.” Susan grew up in the Youngstown area, and attended the Salem Community Hospital School of Radiologic Technology, and later received her Bachelor of Business Administration from Baldwin Wallace. She has worked for small startup firms, managed her own firm, and worked for two Fortune 500 companies. Susan has also spent over a decade serving on the Board and Legacy Council of Providence House, a nonprofit in Cleveland protecting at-risk children and supporting families through crisis. Susan states that “…she is also running to protect our nation’s youth from the threat gun violence. Teachers and young people should feel safe when they attend school every day. Our legislators must do more to curb gun violence in the United States.” She is married with three children.
