Susan grew up in East Liverpool, Ohio. She had 2 brothers and her father worked as the coach of the football team.

She knew when she first started out for American Eagle that she would eventually want to move on to bigger and better things. For someone who knew how to handle life and work, she did a great job of working and keeping her business life afloat. Susan McGalla landed the role of a merchandiser for the American Eagle brand and eventually moved on to Wet Seal and a number of other companies.
