Susan graduated from the University of Cincinnati and worked in the field of mental health for the first ten years of her career. Eventually she realized she couldn’t stay indoors eight hours a day and moved on to photojournalism and outreach, where she learned to work with a long stream culturally diverse individuals and groups. She joined Open Table in early 2018 as a street outreach and resource navigator and can typically be found on the streets of Nashville with a camera and a rather large, lovable dog.
Ingrid is inspired by heroes like Desmond Tutu, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Dorothy Day and strives to imitate their dedication to justice for the marginalized and love for all.
Jenna is passionate about advocating for folks who have fallen victim to systems of poverty and oppression and journeying with them through the most difficult parts of life (and celebrating with them in the best parts, too).
Judy Ives serves as a volunteer working with the chaplains. She visits with our friends that have found permanent housing providing spiritual support and friendship.
