Susie grew up in Lancaster, PA in a family with a strong sense of community service and a desire to help and empower others. This desire helped her choose a career path. Susie graduated from Cornell University in 2008 and will graduate with a Master in Social Work from Columbia University School of Social Work in May 2010. During graduate school, Susie has learned and developed skills to be used in work with both children and adults, and in the face of life-threatening illness, loss, trauma, and chemical dependence. Susie has experience with short-term and long-term counseling in both the school and the hospital setting.
Susie is the daughter of Roy and Cindy Baldwin and has two older brothers, Andy and Matt.
