My name is Susan O'Donoghue.  I grew up in Nashville.   I am married  to Conor O'Donoghue. He is a partner in the CPA firm of Coulter and Justus in Knoxville.  We have two daughters. Meghan graduated  from Tennessee Tech University. She is serving in the Peace Corp in Burkina Faso, Africa in community health development. From time to time, my class will either skype with her or facetime with her so we can meet some of the children she works with in her village.  Shannon is a senior at The University of Tennessee, Knoxville.  She is majoring in accounting like her father.  Our favorite vacation spot is Prince Edward Island, Canada.
