Music Makes A Difference
Susan is the founder and CEO/Executive Director of Midwest Animal Rescue & Services (MARS).  As
a personal adjunct to her professional business career, she began volunteering with several local and
national animal rescue organizations.  She saw a need in the animal welfare industry and had a vision
to combine practical business concepts with the passion and love of animals.  She and her business
partner created a hybrid business model which proved successful very quickly.  Under her leadership,
MARS has quickly become one of the largest organizations of it's kind in the Midwest and continues to
expand it's services through forward thinking innovation.

As a teenager, Susan loved working with the older population, seeing value in their life lessons and
humor in their stories.  She volunteered in nursing homes, senior living centers and senior service
programs often.  She's seen first hand the impact that music can have on people and is excited to
combine her love of the non-profit industry with the musical influence that Dose of Music has with
diverse populations.
