Meet Susan, a charismatic improv host who is passionate about building connections through the magic of improvisational theater. In a candid conversation, she shares her personal journey and the joy that improv has unexpectedly brought into her life.
Susan embarked on her improv journey after being inspired by a group of confident and creative women. After attending a class, she discovered her love for this unique form of self-expression.
Her journey to discovering the Little BIG House began when she overheard volunteers discussing the community hub at her local gym.
