Receptionist
Susan Mumma joined The Arc Community Advocates as a part-time receptionist in May 2012. She applied for a position with Arc Community Advocates because she heard that they work with individuals with disabilities and encouraged those individuals to apply so she believed she would be a perfect fit.  She is currently attending Kalamazoo Valley Community College for a Computer Programming (CIS) degree, now an IT degree even though she already graduated with an Occupational and Technical Studies degree.  She volunteers at The Department of Human Services as an Office Support person doing billing, labeling, filing and other office duties. “I love working here and am excited to help out any way that I can,” Sue says.
