Please join us in welcoming Susan Figel to Working Wheels!
Hi! I’m Susan Figel, the new Volunteer Coordinator and Program Participant Liaison for Working Wheels WNC. I am excited to get to know all of our volunteers and, with their help, achieve our goals. I am looking forward to assisting our program participants in their journey to a reliable vehicle. And I am eager to collaborate with our partner agencies on ways to help more working families.
Working Wheels is an organization I fully believe in. Reliable transportation is the fundamental key to greater opportunities and an overall improved future. As a past program participant myself, I understand the peace of mind a reliable vehicle can bring, as well as the stress and uncertainty that goes along with not having one.
I am originally from Pittsburgh,PA, and I am proud of my blue-collar steelworker roots. What I love about Asheville and WNC is I feel a mix of those values and an appreciation of community-focused activism and social responsibility.
I enjoy all things history, thrifting & yard sales, a good book, the beach, hanging out with my dog, and coffee. I’m looking forward to meeting you, and I know that together we will accomplish great things for the working families of WNC!
