Susie was born in England and at the age of nineteen made Canada her home, settling in the Vancouver BC area. She graduated from Douglas College in business administration and personnel. In 2015 she moved to the Peace Region to marry and realized that she had “come home”; falling in love with everything about life in the Peace, yes, even the cold winters and brief Summers.

Susie joined the Foundation in September 2019 and brings over thirty years of diverse experience in business administration in the spheres of tourism, manufacturing, group benefits, trucking, non-profit and agriculture.

What drew Susie to the Foundation is the concept of a Community Foundation as an opportunity for everyone to invest and leave a lasting legacy, now and for the future of our communities – with endless possibilities!

Faith, family and community are most important to Susie. She considers it a privilege to work in such a capacity as to strengthen, connect, share resources and build community through the Northeast BC Community Foundation.
