Susan C. Troupe, State Advisor for Connecticut HOSA-Future Health Professionals at Connecticut State Department of Education, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in health profession education.
Ms. Troupe has dedicated her life’s work to the education field for over fifty years. Throughout her distinguished career, she has served notable organizations such as Augsburg University between 1971 and 1980, the Minnesota State Department of Education, Sinclair Research Ltd., Brookfield High School in Connecticut between 1991 and 2016, Education Connection between 2000 and 2012, FIRST Robotics FRC Team 1099 between 2002 and 2016, Post University in 2019, CT HOSA-Future Health Professionals as part of the Connecticut State Department of Education between 2012 and 2023. She has also been fortunate to have had the ability to travel internationally and immerse herself in the culture and educational systems of foreign countries.
With a determination to instigate occupational reforms, Ms. Troupe entered the field of education with a purpose. This drive is what sustained her throughout her education, pushing her to obtain a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from Augsburg University in 1971. Subsequently, she earned certification as a global career development facilitator from Kobylarz and Associates in 2006. She completed the Network of Educators in Science and Technology (NEST) program from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2008 and the Non-Degree Program on International Educational Resources (PIER) from Yale University in 2009.
Ms. Troupe received extensive media coverage for her advocacy on behalf of the unemployed, including renowned publications like The New York Times, Baltimore Sun, and Prevention Magazine. She appeared on The Phil Donahue Show twice, where she spoke on the issue of unemployment in the United States. This recognition led her to write and self-publish “Troupe’s Re-employment Resource Guide,” a book on resources for the unemployed. She also had an opportunity to testify before the United States Congress about the hardships of unemployed people trying to get an extension of unemployment payment.
In the upcoming years, Ms. Troupe has no intentions of discontinuing her work. She envisions authoring another book and expanding her class offerings. When she is not working, she dedicates her time and attention to photography and is currently engaged in coursework on feng shui, personal and professional development, as well as alternative health.
