Known to many as Mama Susan, this woman of boldness spent countless hours with survivors, their families, detectives and a former pimp, emerging a voice for victims and a catalyst for action among her peers. One ministry director offered an early review of the book: “Susan made me feel such a deep connection to Hope, I now carry her in my heart. She is the face of the girls I am fighting for.
As the founder and executive director of the nonprofit, Rescuing Hope, Susan raises her voice on behalf of all the “Hopes” across our nation. She lobbies for stronger laws to protect victims, walks alongside survivors who seek assistance from Rescuing Hope as they piece together shattered lives and invites all she speaks with to join her in the fight for freedom.
A member of the Georgia State Human Trafficking Task Force, a CLASS certified speaker and a P.O.S.T. certified instructor on human trafficking, Susan graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro with a Master’s of Education. She taught in public and private schools as well as served with various student organizations in a volunteer capacity.
Susan speaks on a variety of topics which include but aren’t limited to: faith, relationships, purity, identity, parenting, internet safety, and sex trafficking.
Susan is a wife and mother of two adult children. She and her husband live in Atlanta, Georgia.
