Susan’s lifelong love of the outdoors can be attributed to her childhood in Northern Ontario, where skiing during minus 38-degree winters and canoeing during black fly-infused summers gave her a hardy soul and a strong constitution.
After completing an MA in applied English at the University of Waterloo, she began a soulless and short-lived career as an agency copy writer in the agricultural pharmaceutical field. A love of snowboarding lured her to Whistler, where she took a more fulfilling job as Chief Pizza Toppings Engineer at a local cafe. Her career path has since taken many turns, and whether she is wearing the hat of writer, editor, graphic designer or entrepreneur, Susan brings enthusiasm and well-earned years of experience to the table. Susan enjoys van camping, crossword puzzles, and sharp pencils.
