HWPI Volunteer Spotlight: Susie Paisley

Susie Paisley, a friend of Karen McKeachie, wants to do whatever she can to help complete the B2B and honor Karen’s legacy. Susie is an avid runner, all-around athlete, compassionate soul, and a whiz with spreadsheets and numbers. She has turned her CFO skills and a roll-up-your-sleeves attitude toward supporting HWPI and the B2B by serving on the HWPI Executive Committee as Treasurer. She is also a regular volunteer at HWPI events.

When talking with Susie about why she loves to be involved with HWPI, she shared multiple times that people involved in the project have energized her and made her so proud to be a part of the mission. THANK YOU, Susie, and all of our volunteers and supporters, who generously give their time, passion, expertise, and money so that our communities will have this amazing resource for years to come.

Stay tuned for future Volunteer Spotlights. There are many talented people involved in this project!
