Susan was born with a profound hearing loss. Fully mainstreamed through elementary and high school, she was an exceptional student while competing with normal hearing individuals. She studied Medical Careers Technology in high school. The first in her family to attend college, Susan entered into the nursing program at her school. (NOTE: Susan's name is changed for this bio.)
