DSC_0086Susan is a sixth-generation Huntsvillian and has seen quite a few changes to… well…what used to be the countryside!! Susan graduated from UAH with a Bachelor’s in Human Resource Management and worked at Huntsville City Schools in the Human Resouces office for nine years. In 1993, she married the love of her life, Rob Terry, who is the Director of Audit and Risk Management for Huntsville City Schools. They have two children – Laura who is a student at Mississippi State University and Mary Kate who is a student at Grissom High School.

Susan’s home church, Holmes Street UMC in downtown Huntsville, is where she grew up and attended for many years. She also attended Aldersgate UMC for a short time where she helped to start a Singles group and worked with the middle school youth. She returned to Holmes Street after her children were born and became their Children’s Director on a volunteer basis and then as part-time staff. Susan joined Latham UMC in 2003 as a part-time Children’s Director. Then, in 2005, she became full time staff as the Director of Children and Adult Ministries.  She now holds the ministerial title of “Minister of Children and Connect Ministries.”

Susan takes art classes on her day off, which she says is her great stress relief! She enjoys going to the beach as well as to the Huntsville Botanical Garden to sketch and paint. She hopes to be able to retire to her husband’s native land, England, when they get their girls through college.
