Susan has a passion for encouraging women to discover their divine purpose at any age. As founder of Blank Slate Ministries, she has answered God’s call on her life to create a ministry that inspires women to use their unique gifts, talents, and passions to serve God at the local church and beyond.

Susan has been in ministry for 18 years leading a women’s ministry team, facilitating women’s Bible study groups and serving as a worship team vocalist. She was also a founding member of the Christian contemporary group, 3 + ONE, in which she and two of her best friends, Misty Bridges and Steve Hansen, traveled to churches throughout the Midwest sharing their unique brand of music with a message. God graciously opened doors for them in unique ways that included the opportunity to record their CD, On the Journey, in Nashville and to get hired by Walmart to perform at their Superstore grand opening events throughout a four-state region.

Susan is on the sales team at David C Cook, a non-profit Christian publisher, where she works with churches, ministries, and authors on developing programs that teach and make disciples for Christ.

She also travels to speak and sing, bringing God’s word to life through her message of hope in Christ. Susan’s willingness to share her personal journey of faith brings an authenticity that connects with women of all ages.

Susan has been happily married to her husband, Chip, for 26 years and is blessed to be the mother to son, Devin, and daughters, Meghan and Jillian.
