She was adopted two weeks after she was born and grew up in Hertfordshire where she went to school. From there she went on to Watford Grammar School for Girls. She studied her A-Levels at Oaklands College, St Albans, and then went on to gain a BA (Hons) in Humanities, majoring in English Literature and minoring in History and American Studies, from the University of Leicester in 1995.
Upon graduating, Susie worked in publishing and Public Relations before taking up a call to Christian ministry. She earned a Masters of Divinity from Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, Georgia, graduating in the summer of 2002. Susie went on to work in churches in North Carolina until her ordination and instillation as Associate Pastor for Discipleship and Spiritual Growth at First Presbyterian Church, Lumberton, North Carolina in January of 2005.In October of that year she received a call to be Solo Pastor of Burnt Presbyterian Church, Winchester, Virginia. Unbeknownst to her this church was founded by her Great x 4 Grandfather, Henry Martin White and was also the location of his last ever sermon on 22 November 1910, just a week before he died. Regrettably, as a result of complications from medication given during a bout of viral pneumonia, Susie had to retire from full time ministry in 2007 and return to England
She still continues to serve in the local church where she can, is a committed member of the Women's Institute, a keen crafter, baker, and country walker, and an avid genealogist. She loves being in the collaborative family that is Wikitree amongst all of the "gengeeks" and is taking baby steps towards a Masters in Genealogy, Palaeography, and Heraldic studies from the University of Strathclyde through distance learning.

I have taken over from Joan this weekend as Team Leader for the England Data Doctor Team. Have you visited the England_Data_Doctors_Team_Page
Thank you for being part of the team, appreciate anything you can do to help
The table on the page with a list of errors, the idea is that people adopt an error and then work on it to get it down to the lowest possible number. When that is achieved then they check that error weekly and correct any new ones.
I don’t know if you would be interested in taking on one or two of the errors. Have a look and think about it then let me know if there is something you would like to do. Please do edit to add your name to the list if you wish
