Susan is an asset to our team with responsibilities including:

Not only does Susan find it rewarding to help clients everyday at work, but she continues to be an active member in her community. Susan is an active volunteer at the Pequot Lakes Baptist Church as the church treasurer, by serving on the social committee, and by providing refreshments and teaching the children’s church.

Susan is a loving mother and wife to her husband, Fred, and her three children, Andrew, Holly, and Charlie. For this outdoorsy family, Duluth is one of their favourite hidden gems to travel to and spend time together. Although they love and appreciate living in Pequot and being surrounded by the hundreds of lakes, some of their best memories together are spent venturing and hiking along the magnificent north shore.
