Suz calls herself an alumni employee as she was here, then left for a few years, but is now back for a 2nd term. She plans on staying till she retires along with Dr. Murphy and some of the other “ole folks” who are on staff. Suz is a very family-oriented person who has raised 2 wonderful sons, one of whom has proudly served and retired from the United States Marine Corp. Her other son has moved from the midwest to Caldwell to be closer. She has 4 grandchildren who work very hard at keeping her and her husband, Mike, young. Her oldest granddaughter has decided to pursue a degree to become a Licensed Veterinary Nurse. Suz and Mike enjoy spending time in the mountains of Idaho hiking, camping, mushrooming, and huckleberry picking. Suz is perfecting her skills in campfire cooking.
Suz has a great passion for rescuing animals. In the past year alone, she has had 10 dogs cross her path where she was able to find loving forever homes for them. She has also taken home a little ball of fur that weighed a whole 0.5 #. Miss Grace Kitty is now a happy healthy little bundle of energy who rescued us from the sorrow of losing our elderly chocolate lab, Kona. She is named Grace because of what she has done for them. When they first got Grace Kitty, they said they were going to foster her and look for a home for her, but she has worked her way into their hearts and their life, so she will be staying here in her forever home.
