Jones is passionate about the revitalization and growth of Detroit. Through her work with Impact Detroit Magazine, she aims to inspire and uplift the community by sharing stories of progress and hope.

Jones started Impact Detroit Magazine in 2010, intending to change the negative perception that many people have of Detroit. Instead, she wanted to showcase the positive aspects of the city, including its vibrant culture, rich history, and resilient people. The magazine covers various topics, including local businesses, events, entertainment, and community initiatives. Jones believes that by highlighting these positive stories, she can shift the narrative about Detroit and encourage more people to invest in the city's future.

In addition to running Impact Detroit Magazine, Jones is involved in various community organizations and initiatives. She leads by example and has many volunteer services to her credit. For instance, in support of The "Covenant House" in Detroit, Susan fundraised and slept outside in 18-degree weather to bring awareness to homeless children. The "Convent House" was featured on FOX 2 News. In 2014, during the Obama administration, Susan was one of 60 people around the country invited by the White House Business Council and Business Forward for a briefing at the White House to discuss strengthening the economic competitiveness of America's small businesses. She took this opportunity to advise senior White House and administration officials on how federal policy affects small businesses and home markets. "Careers Mastered" honored Susan and awarded her a Leadership in Action Award. Susan is in the Class of 2016; a class photo hangs in the Michigan State Capital.

Various organizations and publications have recognized Jones's work with Impact Detroit Magazine. In 2018, she was named one of the Detroit News' "Michiganians of the Year" for her efforts to promote positive news and stories in Detroit. In addition, she was featured and honored as a V.I.P. Member in 2020 by P.O.W.E.R. (Professional Organization of Women of Excellence Recognized) for outstanding contributions and achievements in the publishing field. These women exemplify tenacity. They realize that to reach their goals, they must never give up and continue to strive to become influential in their profession.

Susan Jones positively impacts the city she loves through her work with Impact Detroit Magazine. Her dedication to highlighting Detroit's positive stories and achievements inspires others to invest in the city's future and work towards a brighter tomorrow.

Jones grew up in Memphis, TN, and Moved to Detroit in 2005 when she remarried her ex-husband. The success of Impact Detroit Magazine inspired Jones to expand her vision to Atlanta. She launched Impact Atlanta Fashion and Beauty Magazine in 2019. She gained a partner Terri Stephenson in 2020 to showcase the city's thriving fashion and beauty scene and to celebrate the diverse communities that make Atlanta such a unique and vibrant city.

Impact Atlanta Fashion and Beauty Magazine has quickly become popular in Atlanta.

In addition to her work with magazines, her impact goes beyond just publishing.
