Susan Landrum, MSW, believes in the power of voice and loves working alongside teens to hone and amplify their unique perspectives. She has served as the Executive Director of VOX Teen Communications, deepening the organization’s impact, increasing its visibility through community engagement, and strengthening its infrastructure. Before going to VOX, Susan worked at Partnership Against Domestic Violence (PADV) for five years as a volunteer and development director. She earned her bachelor’s degree in Africana studies from Vassar College and in 2014 received her master’s degree in social work from Georgia State University.

Susan also serves as the chair of the Pastor Nominating Committee of Central Presbyterian Church and is a board member of Charis Circle, the nonprofit arm of the South’s oldest feminist bookstore.

She is fueled by plenty of coffee, books, friendship, family, and the earnest love of a hound named Elvis.
