She worked closely with Mr. Luce in public education and health care policy across multiple initiatives, and they founded several non-profits together. More recently, she has focused on bringing the efficiencies and effectiveness of the private sector to the public sector as an Advisor in McKinsey & Company’s public and social sector practice.

He is currently the President/Owner of the Texas MDLive Provider Group and continues as an active telehealth provider. He enjoys being able to continue to see pediatric patients virtually while spending more time with his family, including his eight grandchildren.
Andy attended Camp Fern for two years until his family bought a home on Fern Lake in 1960, and from that point on his family lived on Fern Lake every summer. Their three children, Matt, Laura and Kathleen, have also grown up on Fern Lake and they all attended Camp Fern every summer, going on to become counselors themselves. He and Susan have three grandchildren who are current campers at Camp Fern Legacy and two more who will start as soon as they are of age. He is excited about a larger role assisting the nursing staff at Camp Fern Legacy as well as offering his assistance to its Board.
