Susan was a founding member of Enchantment but moved away from Albuquerque in 2002. She moved back and began playing with the group again in 2015. She was first introduced to handbells accidentally in 1993, when she showed up too early for a choir practice. She has since rung at churches in Boulder (CO), Albuquerque (NM), Durham (NC), Las Cruces (NM), and in two community choirs (Enchantment and another in Colorado). Susan also plays the tuba and is currently a member of the Albuquerque Concert Band. She finds it difficult to ring and play tuba at the same time but is hoping to someday find a way to realize that dream.
Professionally, Susan is a criminal justice researcher, and she telecommutes to her job at RTI International. She is also a licensed mental health counselor.
