Susie Gordon has been the Administrative Assistant at the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust for over 20 years, enduring both a relocation and a renovation of Trust headquarters. Her charming personality and welcoming smile—traits honed during her Lynchburg, Virginia upbringing—are well-known fixtures at the Trust for visitors and employees alike. After graduating from Ferrum College in Southwestern Virginia, Susie and her husband Larry lived on the Eastern seaboard in Newport, Rhode Island and Norfolk, Virginia while Larry was in the Navy.
In Norfolk, Susie cut her teeth in retail at the historic Willis Wayside furniture store, and she used that experience after moving to the Triad to run her own High Point furniture showroom. After working at First Presbyterian Church as a secretary, she joined the Trust in 1993. Susie is active in her church and enjoys bicycling around Winston-Salem with her husband.
