Suzanne grew up in Omaha, Nebraska but found herself in the Evanston/Chicago area well over 40 years ago. She taught elementary children of all ages for over 28 years before she began to coach and support teachers in the classroom for 10 years. She is now retired but keeps herself busy with supporting the leadership team at Hillside by representing the church community as a member of the prayer team, leading a women’s study, and facilitating the web site maintenance. She serves the Free Methodist North Central Conference as a member of the Ministerial Appointment Committee. She also is a Rapid Response Team chaplain deploying with BGEA for disaster relief. Hillside has surrounded her with amazing Christ-loving friends for the past fifteen years.
