Susan E. Sobel, R.N. Clinical Supervisor
Susan has been with Arlington Women’s Center since September 2010. Susan has a unique history. She was delivered by our very own Dr. Gustavo Rossi in Virginia Hospital Center (formally known as Arlington Hospital). She graduated from T.C. William High School in Alexandria, Virginia and pursued a career as a medical assistant in the OB/GYN field.
After working several years with OB/GYN patients, Susan returned to school to become a Registered Nurse. She has worked as a nurse in both Labor and Delivery and Reproductive Endocrinology.
Susan has a son and enjoys spending time with her family and two dogs, as well as traveling anywhere that has a beach. She plans on eventually returning to school to become a family nurse practitioner so that she can continue to provide care to women.
