Susan Blanchard - Jones               Pronouns: She/Her/Hers

Board President

SOFFA Director

Susan is an ordained Disciples of Christ minister. She has a passion for the transgender community because Finn Jones is her life partner. She has two grown kids, Ryan and Jennifer and lives with Finn and their herd of fur babies. Susan has been a teacher, a minister and is currently studying to be a licensed professional counselor. Her passion for the transgender community is in helping their SOFFA's in the group. The acronym SOFFA stands for Significant Others, Family, Friends and Allies.


"I feel so privileged to hear them tell their stories. Each transgender person has people in their lives that need support. They need a safe space to discuss their concerns, air their griefs, and ask those difficult questions. Each of us in the group try to help the best we can. Each time we meet I walk away feeling more supported than I did before. I feel at home with this group of people. They are family!"
