Five minutes with Susan Stidham Dobbs


By Melissa Hicks

CIW-COM-5 MIN DobbsSusan Stidham Dobbs is the owner of Westfield Jazzercise at Christ United Methodist Church. She has been a resident of Westfield 18 years.

What is your favorite restaurant and why? Jan’s, because the pizza is delicious and they do so much for the community. We have our soccer team parties there.

Have you had a boss or colleague whom you admired? If so, why? Dianne Brooks. She is just an amazing Christian woman, very professional, very honest and fair in all of her dealings.

What do you do in your spare time? Something I do in my spare time is, we own greyhounds and we’re involved with an adoption group called Prison Greyhounds. I’m a vice president of that. We have a greyhound named Dillinger, spent some time (training) in the slammer. We bring the dogs up from the racetracks in Florida, the retired racers, and then they’re fostered at Putnamville Correctional Facility by inmate handlers. Then we adopt them to their forever homes. We take them from professional athletes to pets.

What is your favorite type music? I listen to K-love, it’s contemporary Christian.

Which local event most captures your attention? Westfield Rocks the 4th.
