Susan is an experienced leader, dedicated advocate, former small business owner and a concerned community member who wants to ensure that Minnesota renews its commitments to citizens and end legislative gridlock at the Capitol. Susan and her family have long held ties with the east metro community.  Her husband of 24 years, Chris, is a Maplewood native and has worked for 3M for almost 30 years. Susan and Chris reside in Woodbury with their son, Andrew.
