Susanna Hailey Thomas, Associate

Susanna Hailey Thomas has gained a wide variety of political experience through her work in association advocacy. Susanna’s experience includes campaign management, grassroots organizing, strategic planning, event planning, coalition building, and PAC fundraising. 

Before joining Nexus, Susanna worked as the Political Operations Manager and Local Government Affairs Director for the North Carolina Association of REALTORS. Her position allowed her to travel from Murphy to Manteo, quite literally, as she helped to grow the NC Homeowners Alliance. She managed state and local campaigns, implemented new initiatives to mobilize association members, and monitored legislative proceedings on both the local level in Moore County and at the NC General Assembly. Susanna also has extensive experience in PAC management, fundraising, and compliance from her time spent as the Political and Grassroots Specialist with the Carolinas Credit Union League. 

Hailey has called Raleigh home since the age of five and loves all that the City of Oaks has to offer. She is a graduate of Wake Forest University and a proud Demon Deacon!
