Sue is originally from Waukesha, Wisconsin. She moved to Seattle 25 years ago after having visited once and knowing that it was where she belonged. Sue loves the enthusiasm of the group, and the passion everyone has in carrying out O2A’s mission, and certainly the energy of the youth! She does a lot of her school volunteer work with parents who are simply burning out from the years and years of constant budget cuts and sometimes the work feels like such a slog. Not so with O2A. Sue has two kids, now 19 and 16, and through their activities and school have done a lot of volunteering, which has almost exclusively been through fundraising. Her experiences growing up helped develop a soft spot in her heart for the underdog, which is where she channels her volunteer energy.
