About Susan Mandel:

Susan Mandel was born in New York City, raised in Brighton Beach, and received a Bachelor's Degree at Brooklyn College in 1965. She worked in Manhattan from 1965 to 1972 at US Passport Office and Aetna Insurance. She married Michael Mandel in 1965 and moved to Florida in 1972 to begin a business with her husband. Michael, Susan, and their company were active in Rotary and the Chamber of Commerce from 1972 to the current date. They continued their business until 2018 and then went to work for Minuteman Press. In 1980 she became a mom. In 1992, she became a widow. Susan has served in numerous volunteer capacities for the Broward Library and the Guardian Ad Litem office.

"I plan to continue working and volunteering until physically unable or dead, whichever comes first."
