Sue began her working career as an Occupational Therapist in her homeland, Australia. Following this career path for close to ten years in Canada, the entrepreneurial urge overcame her healthcare focus and she started and operated successful boutique restaurants and catering businesses in Vancouver for many years.
In the late eighties, together with her husband she bought the Grocery Store in Whistler, a highly successful retail grocery business. Ten years later the company opened a second, equally successful location in Pemberton. Sue’s primary role today is Managing Partner of the Pemberton Valley Supermarket.
She serves on the Executive of a number of not for profit arts and cultural boards both in Vancouver and Whistler. Currently, Sue is a Director on the Board of Trustees of the Audain Art Museum in Whistler.
A long time supporter of businesswomen’s networking associations in Vancouver and Whistler, she has also participated with the Women’s Enterprise Centre as a speaker and mentor for women in business. In 2007 Sue was awarded the Business in Vancouver, Influential Women in Business Award.
Sue joined the Small Business Roundtable in 2008.
