Susie was born Suzanne Elizabeth MacLeod, daughter of Emily MacLeod in Islington, London, England on 12 November 1972, a Sunday.
|Go Windsor Warriors!|
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.Most recently, Susie has taken on the role of Project Coach at WikiTree, advising on how to structure and lead projects so that they thrive and grow.

That is fine. Sorry for not getting back earlier.
Does this mean that I will stop receiving all the Project e-mail? This afternoon alone I got three.

You sent a public comment to me almost a year ago and I do not know if I ever answered it. If not my apologies. Yes I would really like to be involved more in the England Project any way that I can if I am capable. I have poor skills in some areas and better skills in others but my heart is always into what I do.
