Susan England

Operations Coordinator

Susan was drawn to Wonderful People when she first encountered the Golden Rule Revolution two years and bought copies to share with friends outside of the area. She was delighted at seeing the Caring Habits message spread throughout the Berkeley Springs area in the past year. From years of professional experience in the local schools, Susan knew the area needed and would respond to the comprehensive character development program.

Susan has a degree in Elementary Education from Penn State, Suma Cum Laude. She believes that both the things she studied and her widely varied experiences during those studies and since have been central to her ability to actively support others in their creative process.

Susan believes that her experience helping to manage a team of professional hair stylists/educators for a major beauty supply company also contributes significantly to her ability to support and coordinate the activities of the other members of the Wonderful People team.

Part kite-string holder, part mother hen, Susan is pleased to be part of the Wonderful People team. She finds her role as Operations Coordinator, which is essentially holding down the fort along with supporting the other team members in the projects and programs where they’re involved and instrumental, challenging and fulfilling.
