Suzanne has worked as a nurse or health system leader in most sectors of health care in her 30+ year career. Having lived and been an active community member in rural Ontario (both north and south), downtown Toronto, Mississauga, Guelph and now Fergus, Suzanne has a broad understanding of the human impacts of health and social services on the health of the people living in Ontario.
