Susan Pauls

Susan is a long-time FBC member who joined with her husband, John, in 1988 when they came to Lawrence for John to attend law school. When he graduated, they just never left. Susan was raised in the far reaches of western Kansas in a tiny, tiny town called Coolidge. She and John met at Friends University in Wichita, where she majored in English.

Her first foray into working with tech was as a help desk agent and then as a project planner for PARS Travel Information Systems (then owned by Delta, Northwest, and TWA airlines, later named Worldspan, still later called Travelport). She loves riding her road bike, trail running, making jewelry, and diving down tech rabbit holes. Susan and John have two grown kids and a 16-pound beast of a cat named Schrödinger (Ding for short).
