Before working in these positions for Susan B. Anthony List and Indiana Right to Life, Sue served as the Communications Director for the Indiana Professional Licensing Agency. Prior to that role, she worked for the Indiana Family Institute and Indiana Right to Life. At the Indiana Family Institute, she ran the Hoosier Congressional Policy Leadership Series, a leadership program that trains conservatives for community service and policy leadership initiatives. She also coordinated its initiative to provide marriage and relationship enhancement programs, for which she is also a certified facilitator, primarily in jails and prisons. While at Indiana Right to Life, Sue was the organization’s chief lobbyist and developed policy initiatives.

Sue is a former Vice President with the Greater Indianapolis Chamber of Commerce, where she represented the business community, working with local and state officials to advocate for business-friendly regulations and legislation on tax and fiscal issues, infrastructure, environmental and local and government consolidation. She also staffed that chamber’s Political Action Committee. She was also the first Executive Director for the Indiana Christian Chamber of Commerce.

Prior to her years at the chamber, Sue was Policy Director at the United Way of Central Indiana and was active in such issues as child abuse, senior citizen’s services and welfare reform. She founded the Children’s Coalition of Indiana, a statewide children’s advocacy group, which played a key role in the creation of Indiana’s “Kids First” license plate.

Specializing in planning and management, Sue has a master’s degree in Social Work from Indiana University.

Sue resides in Indianapolis where she attends Northside Baptist Church. In her free time, Sue enjoys gardening, reading and all outdoor activities. Sue’s Christian faith has led to her commitment to working in the public policy arena on issues affecting life, marriage and the family.
