A dental assistant before she became a dentist's wife, you can still find Susan assisting Dr. Shults, helping out at the front desk, keeping the flowers in the front blooming and greeting people as they walk in! When not in the office, Susan is usually baking, tending her rose garden, or playing ball with Otis and Bailey - the Shults' two large Labrador rescue pups.
