Specifically, Sue specializes in working with students navigating racial identity and gender identity (including transgender and gender non-conforming) in the workplace.

Sue earned both her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Hofstra University. Originally from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Sue has found her home in New York and when she isn't at work, she is likely spending time with her family, watching her favorite sports teams - the Philadelphia Eagles and New York Yankees - or lifting weights at the gym.
