Susan has had a love of the outdoors all her life – growing up in the Canadian prairies cross-country skiing, skating, camping, hiking and swimming. She has had the great fortune to move to Vancouver Island and enjoy hiking the numerous and beautiful trails that this region offers. Susan worked for many years as a physical therapist and more recently leading quality improvement and public engagement initiatives in health care in BC. Her volunteer work over the years has focused on supporting families and building community connections. Susan is looking forward to supporting the work of the NTS in building and linking high quality, sustainable trail systems and she has a specific interest in making parts of the trail system universally accessible.
