Prior to joining team RCPD as a Real-Time Captioner in 2016, Susie was seen around Michigan State’s campus as a freelance captioner. For the past 14 years, Susie used her skills to assist students with disabilities at East Lansing High School. She began her career in captioning with CART services after documenting depositions as a court reporter in East Lansing for two years.
When Susie is not working, she enjoys spending time with her two daughters and husband. She grew up and lives in Dewitt, Michigan and enjoys living close to some of her extended family. Susie’s heritage is largely German, and her family owned Martha’s German Bakery as she was growing up. She and her husband also frequently travel to Germany to visit with more family. Together they like walking, reading, baking, and exploring Germany.
