Sue joined Project Hope in 2018. For Sue, coming to Project Hope was like coming home. Throughout her 20+ year career, she has often worked side by side with women living in poverty to seek solutions and improve outcomes. Sue spent nearly a decade in Peru and Bolivia, involved in grassroots movements to create opportunity for families who lacked access to essential resources. She raised awareness and funding to support specific programs for working children, mothers in prison, and migrant families. During those years, Sue was often in sacred circles of women who showed the inspiring courage and drive to make lives better for themselves and their children - the very circles we encounter daily at Project Hope.
Upon her return to the United States, Sue was Director of Corporate Work Study for Cristo Rey Boston High School in Dorchester, MA. She managed a team that prepared low-income high school students from Boston for weekly work study placements with 115 corporations within the Greater Boston area. She later served as Director of Educational and Corporate Partnerships for Junior Achievement of Northern New England, connecting corporate partners with opportunities to impact K-12 students through classroom and on-site programming. Most recently Sue was Managing Director of External Engagement with Citizen Schools, a national nonprofit that seeks to close the educational learning gap for under-resourced communities. Sue is a graduate at Boston College and lives in Braintree, MA with her husband and two teenage daughters.
