Susan was born in Windsor ON, into an Irish Family, great yarn spinners. Susan was #4 of 6 children and not sure if that's significant, but she inherited the story bug in spades. Not surprising that the study of English Literature drew her to U of Windsor, and she graduated with a major in English Literature with a Minor in Psychology.
Susan was widowed at a very young age (36) and raised three daughters. Each daughter chose a career path that led to teaching in the Secondary School system, teaching English, Family Studies, Geography and Hospitality, and continuing further studies to this day. "I am a proud mother," she explained.
She describes her life, "as quite a journey." She lists the many jobs she did over the years, waitressing, sales clerk, law firm secretary, law firm bookkeeper, teacher of English as-a-second language, which led to supervisor of seventeen teachers in that progam, geriatric mental wellnes - - and throughout always volunteering, writing and even acting and now on to a new skill - storytelling. As she said, "it's not over yet!"
Susan is the newest member of GGS and looks to lift her stories off the printed page and share them in a new format - bringing them to life through an oral presentation. We look forward to hearing her stories shaped for the ear.
