Meet Brittany Sustar, the Operations Manager of Nursing for University Hospitals Geauga Medical Center, who graduated from the Signature Adult Program in 2021!

Brittany is a proud native of Geauga County with deep roots and a heart full of love for her community. She’s a loving wife and a mother of three beautiful daughters, proving that her passion for caring extends beyond her professional life. She holds a degree from Kent State University Geauga Campus (Class of 2010) and is a devoted parishioner and Eucharistic minister at St. Helen Catholic Church.

But Brittany’s commitment doesn’t stop there. She’s a dedicated volunteer, participating in various community events such as Mission 440, United Way, Red Tulip Project, Claridon Community Helps, and University Hospitals outreach events. Additionally, she serves as the Vice President of the Lifeline Board, contributing to self-sufficiency and the fight against poverty in the community. Currently, Brittany is pursuing a dual master’s degree in business (MBA) and nursing (MSN) at Indiana Wesleyan University, exemplifying her lifelong commitment to learning and growth.

Brittany speaks highly of her Leadership Geauga experience, which opened new doors and relationships. She acknowledges that it revealed a deeper understanding of Geauga County and allowed her to connect with organizations like DeJohn Funeral Home, Sisters of Notre Dame, United Way, and Claridon Community Helps.

Leadership Geauga has positively influenced Brittany’s life, enabling her to connect with others and volunteer in her community more effectively. The DiSC assessment she undertook during the program provided valuable insights into her personality and how she could better communicate and work with others.

Brittany’s journey post-Leadership Geauga is nothing short of impressive. She joined the Lifeline Board, completed the UH Leadership Advancement Program, and was recognized by the UH system CEO and Geauga Medical Center as a Healthcare Hero, a testament to her remarkable contributions to the healthcare field.

Brittany Sustar’s journey is a true inspiration to us all. She embodies the spirit of leadership, community involvement, and continuous personal and professional growth. We are proud to have her as part of the Leadership Geauga family, and we can’t wait to see the impact she will continue to make in the future. 🌟
