I first got involved with GOTR through a good friend who was going to one of the first informational meetings. I loved the idea of helping young girls better themselves. Unfortunately my work schedule does not allow me to be a GOTR coach but I have been able to stay involved by volunteering at the Spring 5k. I was given the job of “the megaphone” guiding the runners to the finish line. I love this job because I get to see all the runners doing what they can to keep themselves going. Typically as soon as I tell them they are almost done they all smile and give the run one last push!  I love this job and I look forward to it each year!
In my free time I love to be outside. I love to run with my dog and I love to garden!  I even don’t mind shoveling snow. 🙂
Being a gymnastics coach I get to work with kids from 1 1/2 yrs to 18 years old. I love watching the changes in the kids as they grow and I love teaching them my favorite sport, gymnastics.  I am most passionate about making people feel good about themselves and keeping a positive spin on everything, hence the nickname “Susie Sunshine”.
