Suzanne is a communications professional with 20 years of strategic and hands-on experience in competitive and diverse environments.
Suzanne started her career as a Communications generalist at Western Canada Lottery Corporation, transitioned into brand/design, web, marketing and funds-development work at various non-profits, and then joined the energy sector where she has led community investment, events planning, branding, and internal communications work. She is now back in the non-profit sector as Communications Director for Wellspring Calgary.
Suzanne is passionate about creating a dynamic team environment where employees feel recognized and supported.
In 2013, Suzanne obtained her ABC designation and in 2015, received her ProSci certificate to better understand change management and how to affect it through our communications strategies. She has also been a member of United Way’s Women United Steering Committee since late 2017, which provides engagement opportunities to those who give at a leadership level.
Suzanne is new to the CPRS Calgary Board of Directors, joining in the summer of 2019, where she chairs the Communications portfolio.
While she holds her ABC designation through IABC, Suzanne believes that the profession as a whole (and all Communicators) benefit when our association bodies are relevant and strong.
