Susan Selden
Executive Director

Susan Selden has been the Executive Director of the Cumbee Center since 2015 and is passionate about our mission to support and empower domestic violence and sexual violence victims and their families by providing services, reducing the tolerance of abuse, and advocating for social change. 

Her goals are to grow the capacity of the agency to provide free, confidential services to victims in all of the counties we serve, empower staff to competently provide trauma-informed services as well as evidence-based prevention education, and to encourage collaborative relationships with partner agencies. She graduated from USC-Aiken with a degree in Elementary Education and taught in public schools for 7 years. Then she completed a master's degree in Community and Counseling Psychology from Augusta State University in 1995 and was employed as a bereavement facilitator and volunteer coordinator with hospices in Aiken.

Susan is married to Edward Selden who is employed by Fluor Corporation and has 3 children and 2 grandchildren. She enjoys traveling, hiking, reading, and spending time with her new grandbaby, Wyatt.
