Susan Krutis

Assistant Professor

Occupational Therapy

Cork Street, 5th Floor


Faculty Member since 2013

I have enjoyed 17 years as a clinician, recently joining SU as full-time faculty in 2013. I have been fortunate to have had wonderful mentors in my career. In the spirit of "paying it forward," I hope to serve as a guide to our prospective occupational therapists. Who could imagine a better career than preparing our future health providers to deliver excellent care?
