MORE ABOUT SUSAN
Single mother of four, Susan was divorced when her children were all still at home between the ages of 6 and 14. Previously, she had stayed at home with them, raising and homeschooling them. Once she became divorced, she returned to the workforce, but continued to stay actively involved in their parenting, instilling solid values and virtues.
Susan has worked mainly in office administration but has also owned two businesses: as an independent contractor, working as a labor and delivery doula; and owner of a home-based nutritional business.
Susan has always had a love for children and has taken the responsibility of raising children to become contributing and well-adjusted adults very seriously. Her children have stellar reputations in the community and are well known as upstanding, God-fearing individuals. She has raised them to value integrity, honesty, and a good work ethic.
Why Pharaoh’s Daughter?
My experience as a mother and my heart for the underprivileged have led me to found Pharaoh’s Daughter for babies born to incarcerated women, which also includes transitional housing for their mothers upon their release. I feel that old-fashioned values are still important in today’s culture, but are rarely taught. I am burdened by the lack of stable options for women newly released from prison, and feel there is more that can be done in the way of educating and offering psychological and emotional healing for women who have been in prison. We offer classes to the residents for various and necessary life skills including parenting, financial IQ, cooking, career assessment, as well as substance and sexual abuse recovery and accountability, etc.
