Susan is a mother of three, a twin with twins, and a longtime rower! By day she is an Academic Advisor at Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC) and by night she likes to either be on the water or in her craft room attempting her next Pinterest project. Aside from trying to be crafty, she would describe myself as someone with a great sense of humor and a positive attitude. Susan discovered her love of rowing in college as a member of the University of Iowa crew team. She has been a DMR member since 1999. Susan enjoys being a part of the DMR community for the camaraderie, the physical and mental challenges, being out on the water and just the pure beauty of the sport! She served as a parent representative on the DMR Youth Committee for four years, and had the honor of watching her daughter blossom and grow as she participated in the youth program all four years of high school, which then led to collegiate rowing opportunities.
