Hi! I’m Susan, founder of the nonprofit ‘Austin Angels’ located in Austin, TX. We work really hard to make sure that kids in the foster system feel loved, validated and cared for. I’m a wife, a mom of two boys, and a full-time advocate. I believe that small things can add up to big things. I’m a dreamer with big dreams. I enjoy spending time with family, I love me some good coffee, I’ll drop most anything to have a nice meaty conversation. I believe in miracles, I live for kids, I cherish stillness (Psalm 46:10), and I thrive from bravery. The characteristic I find most appealing is humility. None of us are perfect. My imperfect life is made to serve a perfect God and for that I am so grateful.
Susan Ramirez, Founder and President of Austin Angels
Hey, I’m Jaclyn! California-born turned Austinite. I love The Smiths and 2pac. I love Kierkegaard and Disneyland. In another life I was a some sort of badass vigilante, or maybe Mother Theresa, it’s hard to say. But I care a lot about justice and even more about reconciliation which usually come hand in hand. I believe that if we could all just punch fear in the face, this world would be a much better place.
Jaclyn Snyder, M.S. Clinical Psychology, Social Activist
