Peninsula Clothes Closet helps patients in need

Posted on April 14, 2016 in Shopper News

For Susan Bourdeau, working with clothes is a perfect fit. Bourdeau is the volunteer coordinator for the Clothes Closet at Peninsula, a division of Parkwest Medical Center, and it’s turned out to be a great way for her to use her natural talent.

A wardrobe stylist and makeup artist by trade, Bourdeau has worked on video and stage projects in various areas of the southeast, most frequently in Knoxville and Miami. On a shoot for a commercial, for example, she expertly applies the actors’ make up to work with the lighting, or pulls together outfits that give them just the right “look.”

“I have worked with a lot of famous people,” says Bourdeau, “I just worked with Dale (Earnhardt) Jr. for a big project, and I’ve worked with most of the HGTV cast, including Paula Deen and the House Hunters.”
