Suzanne Carey

Master of Divinity

Excerpt from an article in the West Linn Tidings, May 13, 2010.

U.S. Army veteran Suzanne Carey is driven to help her fellow veterans returning from the battlefields in Iraq and Afghanistan.

As a veteran who holds a master's degree in counseling, Suzanne is uniquely qualified to help returning veterans but she doesn't just want to treat psychological wounds but wounds of the soul. With this goal in mind she enrolled in the Master of Divinity program at Marylhurst.

"Marylhurst is small, it has a spiritual base if you want it, and I love the professors," Carey said. "They've done all kinds of ministry and they're great mentors. They really believe what they teach."

Suzanne has always felt the calling to help people and in 2001, a few weeks before Sept. 11, she enlisted in the Army. After serving for four years, she felt the calling to help more than ever after seeing how veterans suffered after returning home.

In addition to her studies at Marylhurst, Suzanne will soon be undergoing intensive training to become an Army chaplain. Once she has completed these two goals she would like to return to Marylhurst to teach religion.
