Susan Gregory, Executive Director

Susan is a lifelong member of the Glenville community, where her family has owned a home near the lake since 1957. Susan participated in the Leadership Cashiers Class of 2022 and recently served on the Chamber board as the Leadership Cashiers liaison. In 2020, Susan relocated to the area to enjoy a mountain lifestyle, leaving behind her Elder Law firm of fourteen years on the west coast of Florida. Susan is a proud graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. "These mountains and the Glenville-Cashiers area have always been home to me. I am pleased and grateful to support our community through the Chamber. I look forward to working with our members and community partners."
