She was born to John Allen and Brenda Kay Garris on August 5, 1963. After graduating from Southern Wayne High School, Suzie enlisted in the United States Air Force, serving twenty-one years before retiring as a Master Sergeant (E7) in 2011. Her military service as a medic and her compassion and love for others led her to pursue a career in nursing.

For the past five years Suzie worked in the Intensive Care Unit at Wilson Medical Center.
