      Although I am listed as "Linda"Williamson, I prefer my nickname, "Susie."   I have been happily married for 36 years and have four adult children; three sons and one daughter; two daughters-in-law, and four grandchildren!  I enjoy movies, the theater, Disneyland, zip-lining, exploring, family and friends.  I do not currently have any hobbies because I'm working on my doctoral dissertation!!  I guess that means learning is my hobby and psychology is my passion!
