My name is Susan Gibson. I am working as a Case Manager here at Operation Rebuild Hope. I grew up in the Coos Bay Area. I graduated from Marshfield High School and received my bachelor’s degree through Eastern Oregon University.
In my past experience I have been employed as a Career Consultant and Workshop Instructor at South Coast Business Employment Corporation. I also have been employed at Oregon Coast Community Action in Energy and a Life Skills Coach/Home Visitor for South Coast Head Start. I have assisted individuals in modifying their attitudes and patterns of behavior by increasing understanding of themselves and problem solving. I have assisted individuals with work experience and on-the-job training, and facilitated workshops on job related skills.
My military connection comes from my grandfather who served in the Navy during WWII, my father who served in the Air Force during the Korean War, and my husband who served in the Navy during the Vietnam War. My son-in-law is a disable veteran who served in the Army in Afghanistan.
