Get to Know Susan
What drives you each day at the Joe Andruzzi Foundation?
Without a doubt, it's all about the patients and families. I feel truly blessed to have worked with so many of them over the last five years who were dealing with significant financial barriers associated with a cancer diagnosis and treatment. I am driven each day by their strength and perseverance!
What is your favorite thing about working for the Joe Andruzzi Foundation?
The team! I can’t say enough about the entire JAF community – staff, volunteers, donors, patients, partners and healthcare workers. Everyone involved with JAF truly wants to make a difference! I feel blessed to have been so warmly welcomed into the JAF family!
What’s a “fun fact” about yourself that others may be surprised to learn?
I am obsessed with ALL sports – watching, not playing 😊
I am particularly obsessed with the Providence College Men’s Hockey team (my alma mater) and the Bruins, Patriots, Red Sox and Celtics (in that order)."
