New Event Coordinator, Susan Sansom!

Warm Beach Camp would like to introduce Susan Sansom, the new Event Coordinator!

Susan was born into a Navy family and routinely traveled before settling down in her parent’s home state of Ohio as a child. While in Ohio, she graduated with a degree in paralegal studies and met her husband. With a little one in tow, Susan and her husband moved to California and were enthralled by the diversity of the West Coast, sparking a wanderlust for travel and, eventually, their second child! After a while, a job transfer caused them to move again, this time to Arizona where they welcomed their third child, where they stayed only briefly before moving to the Pacific Northwest.

Susan has expansive work experience, ranging from working in the Ohio State Legislature, lobbying for cellphone and medical companies, and working for a defense contractor in logistical support and HR to owning a bakery and being a stay-at-home mom.

Since starting at Warm Beach Camp, Susan has loved the refreshing work environment. She explains, “I enjoy the authenticity of management here. They are actively living out their faith, and I appreciate the daily devotionals; they show the intentional investment in the spiritual development of the employees.”

Outside of work, Susan enjoys traveling and then recreating international dishes at home! She bakes, makes stained glass windows, and operates a small group that helps bring food sustainability to the local community. Susan said, “God has compelled my heart to help those struggling with hunger. Every other week, there is a potluck dinner to share in community over a delicious meal while simultaneously gathering food for the food banks.”

Welcome to the Warm Beach Camp team, Susan!
