In her duties as Office Manager, Susan manages daily operations, handles payroll and accounts payable, supervises an administrative staff and keeps track of HR benefits for employees. She is also the United Way chairperson for the firm and the social organizer for company events. Susan is Treasurer of Johnson High School's football booster club and is a member of Prince of Peace Catholic Church.
A Personal Glimpse
Susan Fekkers probably would not call herself Rushton's cheerleader, though she rallies the staff to optimize the firm's contributions to annual United Way fund drives and encourages everyone's participation when it's time to organize a company social function. But with her reputation as a sports fan, the moniker might just seem appropriate.
The mother of five boys and one girl would not give up high school sports even after all her children graduated and went on to other pursuits. (The boys were football players and wrestlers.) To remain as involved as when her boys participated, Susan volunteered as Treasurer of Johnson High School's football booster club and is still a fan of that school's wrestling team.
When she isn't cheering on sports teams, Susan loves to garden and travel. Tomatoes, watermelons, corn, strawberries - they're all on her menu when in season. But since there's no official season for travel, anytime she can get away to sightsee, she does, whether it's a special vacation to Idaho with her parents or a visit to California. Her favorite retreat was a Christmas trip with her sons to New York City.
Susan has literally come a long way from her hometown of Twin Falls, Idaho, but she loves the South. And she loves her work at Rushton.
