Susana McCurdy grew up as an Air Force brat, traveling to different states following her father’s career. Her last destination was Las Vegas, where she settled and graduated from University of Nevada, Las Vegas with a degree in human resources management.
“I feel blessed to have an amazing husband, stepson, parents, sister, godchildren, in-laws, close friends and last but not least, our dog named Emma!” exclaimed Susana.
Her passions are food and travel. “I always look forward to new experiences and cultures; you never stop learning,” said Susana.
Susana has spent the past 21 years employed with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD). With 15 years spent in LVMPD Human Resources, three years ago Susana was promoted to a leadership position with the LVMPD Police Records Bureau.
“The best part is when I get to walk the floor and interact with our team members,” explained Susana. “It’s a wonderful organization that’s like a second home.”
Susana began supporting United Way shortly after she joined the LVMPD. Both Susana and her husband are Tocqueville Society members and take advantage of any opportunity to advocate for United Way.
“My former boss held United Way very close to her heart based on her personal experience with the organization growing up,” said Susana. “When I married my husband he was a supporter as well, so it was a perfect match.”
Susana believes in supporting local programs and businesses. “Get to know and support your community members,” said Susana. “I can guarantee they will support you back so we can all LIVE UNITED.”
