Susan joined the Ridge family in November on 2018. She was raised on a farm in Meherrin, VA and inherited her passion for animals from her father. After graduating from Radford University, Susan taught elementary school for a few years. She then devoted her time to raising her two boys, Cody and Dustin. Susan spent several years working at a kennel and groom shop, then she entered the field of personal care giving. Now she has returned to her first love of working with animal and their owners. In her spare time, Susan enjoys snuggling with her two doxiepoos and binge-watching shows on Netflix.
