Susanne Bejian Jordan, Director for CVA

Susanne Bejian Jordan, Director

Having grown up in Warwick, and after 20 years in CT, we returned to our home town in spring of 2020 to be closer to our two adult daughters and our extended family.  The housing market was lean, but we were excited to find a house in the heart of the Village. Since arriving, we have enjoyed the community and being a part of  Village Association activities. I am particularly passionate about Conimicut Point and the Walter Santos Viewing Station, frequently participating in clean ups and beautification projects. We love being outdoors so you will find us working in our yard, walking, biking or searching for beach treasures. If you see us, say hi; we love engaging with our neighbors. Best wishes and welcome to the Village Association.
