Susan’s feature articles, Web content, advertising campaign copy, advertorials and more help communicate St. Mary-Corwin’s mission internally and externally. Her writing synthesizes complicated medical issues and processes and is always focused, compelling and on time — even on short notice. I wish I could hire her full time!

In non-profit community revitalization, the subject matter can be quite complex, yet Susan wades through the detail to arrive at its essence. Similarly she’s a gifted verbal communicator, asking questions to arrive at key issues quickly. She is one of the most effective writers with whom I’ve worked. She makes almost any subject fascinating.

I’ve worked with Susan for more than 13 years. As a partner, she is efficient, and wastes no time getting to the heart of the matter.

Susan has written a variety of pieces for a wide range of audiences for us, but her most amazing work is in the published profiles of the 100 youth selected each year for The Mayor’s 100 Teens. She writes with compassion, makes each individual stand out distinctly from the next, and finds a way to word their sometimes-tragic life circumstances in ways that are uplifting. I wish she wrote all of our important pieces.
