The Next Stage team couldn’t be more excited about the addition of Susan Arrington as our brand-new Digital Content & Community Manager!

Susan comes highly recommended as a collaborative community builder and an expert content strategist who is passionate about social good. We’re thrilled that she’s going to use her talents to help us build a dynamic, engaging Cultivate platform.

Susan has deep experience building community both on and offline. Prior to Next Stage, she spent 13 years leading communications, major projects and overseeing vision alignment for Lake Forest, a network of churches located in Charlotte and Lake Norman. Her resume also includes communication and marketing stops at Cannon School and the Carolina Panthers.

She is a gifted storyteller and content developer, experienced at sharing stories of transformation and impact that move communities to action.

Born in Massachusetts, Susan is not Tar Heel born, but she is Tar Heel bred – she holds a BA in Journalism and a Certificate in Digital Communication from UNC Chapel Hill. She lives with her family in Huntersville where they can be found cheering on their favorite local sports teams, exploring the Blue Ridge Mountains and frequenting Mexican restaurants.
