Born to Jewish parents, Sue didn’t know what a Seder was until into adulthood. Her eventual desire to explore and embrace her Jewishness led to enrollment in a Reform movement “conversion” class, and later joining the DJC, where she has been a member off and mostly on for many years. Sue’s now 15 year old daughter Maya participated joyfully in the DJC’s Bnei Mitzvah Program.
As a single by choice mom and one who has felt like an outsider in Jewish circles, the warmth, diversity, culture of inclusivity and progressive values of the DJC resonate deeply with Sue. She is delighted to have an opportunity to contribute to the well-being of this vibrant community
Professionally, Sue has been a social worker/psychotherapist for over thirty years and she enjoys a busy and fulfilling private practice.
