As a former nurse in emergency medicine and trauma care, Suzanne has a rich history of advocating for patients, including people who learned they had cancer in the emergency room. She has also been in the role of family member, when her mother was diagnosed with leukemia.
Suzanne has had a long association with Moores Cancer Center. As the former chair of the
Patient & Family Advisory Council, she is knowledgeable about patient needs and committed to listening carefully and integrating ideas that help us deliver excellent and compassionate care.
