Vice President, Operations
Shorefast Social Enterprises Inc.
Fogo Island, Newfoundland & Labrador
Like many rural Newfoundlanders, Susan moved away to further her education and start a career. After receiving her Master’s Certificate in Project Management through York University, Susan spent 10 years in project development and management with the Newfoundland and Labrador Statistics Agency in St. John’s. But, the pull of home never went away and in 2014, Susan and her family moved back to Fogo Island. Guided by a deep passion for community development, Susan is involved in many local organizations, particularly in the economic, social, recreation and education sectors. Susan is the Vice President (Operations) for Shorefast and Director of New Businesses for Shorefast Social Enterprises Inc, as well as Executive Chair of the Fogo Island Economic Development Partnership.
