Meet Our Team
Susan Signorino, LMSW, CMC
HelpMeSusan.org has been a work in progress for quite some time. Founder, Susan Signorino, LMSW, CMC, started a professional networking email listserv in 1994 on a small scale as a way to communicate with other Hospice and Home Care social workers in the St. Louis area. Susan was working in rural Jefferson County, Missouri and felt very isolated and wanted to be able to extend her reach and connect with other professional social workers. In 2008, she started working in St. Louis and spreading the word, so her email listserv eventually skyrocketed into 300-400 emails per day! "I had no life and sbcglobal.net thought I was a terrorist and a spammer!" said Susan, before following a colleague's advice and moving the email listserv to Yahoo! Groups in 2009.
Over the past 20 years, Susan has accumulated a wealth of information. She has always wanted to create a website, a blog and a community forum for professionals as a way to organize all of this useful information. The goal of HelpMeSusan.org is for professionals to share what they do and what they have to offer. It is meant for the professional and not for seniors/the lay person. It is absolutely FREE for any professional to utilize our website, join the discussions and take advantage of all the great resources available.

We can all achieve greater success with our patients / clients / residents when we assist one another!
