About Sue

I have worked for Legacy as a part-time content screener since 2006. I studied journalism at Northwestern University, and I am a bit of a word nerd. I enjoy my job because it allows me to read a lot, and write a little also. I find it rewarding to be part of a company providing this service for people dealing with the loss of a loved one. I live in a Chicago suburb with my husband and two teenage sons. As a Boy Scout leader, I get to work with youth and spend a lot of quality time with my boys. I love to travel, and I’m always up for road trips to national and state parks. I like cooking, especially the food of my Greek heritage, and am always trying new recipes.
