On August 1, new member Susie Parr introduced herself to the club. Susie graduated from Union College with a Bachelors degree in Social work. She then graduated from Ohio State University with a Masters in Social Work in 1982.
She has 3 children, 19, 24 and 25, three grandchildren including a new grandson who is 2 months old. Susie claims that she started a little late in her career since she spent the first 10 years after getting her masters degree working part time in private practice while raising children, which she thinks is the most important job.
For the past 11 years Susie has been with The Village Network…a child treatment center as the Director of the South Region. They have 13 sites through out Ohio and provide treatment, foster care, residential and child and family counseling services for about 450 children a day.
Susie is looking forward to becoming involved in the Program Committee and truly believes “Service Above Self” is how we all need to live our life.
