Meet MEP's New Director of Development & Marketing

Susan Bresler, Director of Development & Marketing

Susan came to MEP in late March 2016 with over 17 years of experience in nonprofit fund development and community outreach through her work with a large health system foundation as well as small and medium sized nonprofits. Prior to working in development, Susan had an accomplished career as a clinical social worker. Susan brings her joy of building relationships to her genuine passion for MEP's mission of improving the quality of lives of women and girls through education. She admired and supported the important work of Mercy Education Project since meeting Sr. Maureen Mulcrone, at a networking event for nonprofits in 2009. Susan is absolutely thrilled to now be a member of Mercy Education Project’s staff, working each and every day to help nurture and support the educational dreams of our students. Please feel free to call or email to introduce yourself -- Susan is interested in getting to know all of Mercy Ed’s volunteers and supporters. [email protected]  or 313-963-5881

Here are some recent comments from community members, volunteers, students and others who are commenting on Mercy Education Project.

"There is no more important work being done than that of Mercy Education Project, which is helping to craft the lives of future women leaders. I am so proud to be a part of its mission and purpose. MEP deserves the support of the entire state."

Rochelle Riley, Columnist and Author
Detroit Free Press

"We can't support every good cause, but Mercy Education Project achieves such profound academic results within its small budget …its programs must be sustained.  Too many young girls and women are in need of MEP’s services – they are counting on us.”

Denise Starr, Director of Human Resources
City of Detroit
