Susan is a loving mother and wife to her husband, Fred, and her three children, Andrew, Holly, and Charlie. Both Andrew and Holly attend the University of ND, while Charlie is a proud PLHS junior and athlete. For this outdoorsy family, Duluth is one of their favorite hidden gems to travel to and spend time together. Susan describes herself as an avid gardener and an adventurous soul with a love for travel. Although they enjoy 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.
