Susanna Casique Coleman is our Associate Director. This will be Susanna’s 10th summer here at Camp Live Oak, she is so excited for another wonderful adventure! Originally from Chicago, she attended Southern Illinois University where she earned her Associates Degree in Photo Production Technology and has her Bachelor’s Degree from Thomas Edison State College. Susanna worked in the photo industry for eight years before deciding to pursue a career in education. She says, “I have two passions in life, photography and teaching. I thought it was time to pursue the latter!” She has extensive camping experience, having worked at Camp Ondessonk in Southern Illinois, where she was a counselor and canoe instructor and at Cheley Colorado Camps in Estes Park, Colorado, where she was an out-camping leader. Susanna was also the Assistant Director at Green Children’s House, an early childhood Montessori school where her daughter, Isabella, and son Forest attended. Susanna is certified in First Aid and CPR and is fluent in Spanish. Susanna has been busy planning many wonderful activities for the campers this summer and can’t wait for summer to begin.
