Susan joined the LCDS team in 2019. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree at the
University of Massachusetts in Amherst as a microbiology major and an English minor. After
graduating, she started working as a bench microbiologist at Whitehall Laboratories in southern
New Jersey, close to where she grew up. In 1992, she moved to Fredericksburg, Virginia and
continued to work for Whitehall-Robins in Richmond, the new name for Whitehall Labs, on the
bench and as a technical writer. In 2000, Susan moved to Loudoun County and worked as a
stay-at-home mom to raise her children, Jessica and Andrew. She became very active as a
volunteer while her children were in school. Her favorite volunteering job was all the time that
she spent with the Woodgrove High School marching band. When she went back to work
outside the home, she was a substitute for LCPS, before coming to LCDS. Susan enjoys going on
long walks with her husband, Ken, and watching her two Hokie children march with the
Marching Virginians down in Blacksburg.
