Susan has had a long and rewarding career managing fitness and recreational programming in both the private and public sectors. A graduate of the Humber College Fitness Leadership program, she has been teaching fitness and loving it for 28 years. She founded Love It Fitness on moving to Trent Hills from Oakville in 2014, and relocated to Belleville in November 2020. She continues to run Love It with her usual passion in the new, virtual world created by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Founder and Manager, Forte
Susan launched an online magazine in November 2018 to share the stories and voices of inspiring local women. After many profiles and a great deal of inspiration, Forte turned its attention to live workshops designed to empower through fun, learning and creativity while supporting local artisans and businesswomen.
The activities of Forte were grounded by the pandemic
but the website remains active.
Program Manager, The West School
The renovated historic schoolhouse that housed the Love It studio offered an ideal venue for fitness, arts, music and personal/professional development workshops.
Susan managed programming at the facility on behalf of its owners.
The Love It studio has gone virtual and I no longer act in this capacity.
Westben Festival Theatre in Trent Hills has launched a capital
fundraiser to purchase the building as a rehearsal hall,
learning centre and program space.
