Inside The Life of an IMAlive Volunteer

Suzanne from Florida

Hello, my name is Suzanne and I joined IMAlive in April 2017.

I currently live in Orlando, FL, but I am originally from Manchester in the UK. I miss my family and friends it has to be said, but I am married with 3 kids (aged 18, 17 and 9). My kids keep me busy!

When I lived in the UK I worked with the Samaritans and trained in psychology and counseling. You could say I have always had the listener side to me, the side that people just opened up to.

I joined IMAlive through Random Acts and it has been a wonderful experience. My fellow volunteers have all such wide backgrounds and experienced so much in life, it seems that is what pulls us here. We all care, no matter what we have gone through.

I find listening to music, going to the movies with my kids or just laughter is what I enjoy the most. Humor is so important.

Anyway, enough about me, I just want to say that I am loving the journey that we are all sharing together and hope to continue for many more years.
