About Susan

My name is Susan and this is my personal blog.

I’m a feminist; a writer, blogger (I guess that goes without saying…), editor, and poet; speaker, dementia care advocate, PR professional, poet, Canadian resident/global citizen, humble traveler, and a former triathlete, communications coach, life coach and live model.

I’m passionate about freedom, fun, and pink, as well as for excellence in all types of communications (written and spoken), and changing the face of dementia care. I am committed to lifelong learning.

Part of my overall purpose in life is to inspire others (especially women) to find their voices and make them heard personally and professionally. New mini- and micro-purposes arise regularly from that, and I pursue various creative ventures as they bubble to the surface of my life.

I lived in the United Arab Emirates for 18 years, and returned to Canada in late 2011 to care for my mom Patti, who had Alzheimer’s disease. More about that journey here. Mom died in August 2016, and I moved from North Hatley, Quebec, to Mississippi Mills, Ontario, in July 2018.

I created and curate Amazing Women Rock, SheQuotes and My Alzheimer’s Story

  • Hi Susan, I love your web site! Am thankful for having met you on Sunday. I just spoke with Geoff Hadrill and he gave me your name. You have my professional coordinates (I gave you my card), but I would like to be on your list as a private individual…
    All the best to you!

  • Hi Patty. I just saw your post on the CBC webpage about the Declining quality of our Old Age and Nursing Homes. Thank you. I think it is time to turn up the heat publicly on that issue in Canada. And this may surprise you but I am a feminist as well but of the gentlemanly type. If our prime minister can be feminist so can we all. I guess I may as well subscribe to your page. I think we can actually agree on more thank a few things in these ever so quickly changing times. I do NOT want …will not go…into one of these jails. Nope. Not. Nada. I haven’t even learnt how to snow bird yet and I am only sixty years old. (not meant as a joke as I have nothing but memories of rocking good times playing in the snow.) :-)) But I am really serious about cranking the heat up on this issue.

  • And I just saw your comment now (July 12, 2018). Oops 🙁

    I agree we need to crank up the heat, and so that’s what I’m doing 🙂

    Susan
