Susie loves bright colors, the smell of brand-new tennis, burnt hotdogs, sock monkeys, and laughing till her sides hurt. She’s fun, creative, and has traveled to every continent in the world—yes, even Antarctica. She’s an OKC Thunder basketball fan and has given the invocation at several of their home games.
