susanv.pngAdmin Assistant: Susan Vernal
Susan joined our staff in 2001. She often jokes she arrived her first day on the job as a new photocopier was being delivered… two new fixtures in one day for the UUSB office!
She loves lists and craves organization, along with a voluntarily simplistic lifestyle for which a home life with dogs, cats, and a special-needs child demands.
Her interests are varied and include genealogy, history, foreign languages, home improvement projects—to name just a few. She enjoys movie classics and British comedies. Long ago, she was an elementary school teacher. Email Susan
