Susan is originally from Switzerland where she met her Canadian husband whilst working at a global agribusiness company in Geneva. She then studied at the University of Brighton (U.K.) where she received her Nursing Diploma. As a nurse she has worked on a variety of wards, such as surgical, medical, gynecological and palliative care.
After a couple of years, they moved to Brazil, where she completed her Bachelor of Science and Social Studies through the Open University (U.K.). During this time, she also carried out volunteer work in an orphanage school for low income families in Sao Paulo. During her stay in Brazil, Susan enjoyed going to various local markets and discovering the flavors and foods of Brazil.
As a family Susan equally lived in the U.S., Argentina, United Kingdom – all of these countries have had an influence on Susan’s view of nutrition and food in general.
When their daughter was diagnosed as being gluten and dairy intolerant, Susan decided to take a new approach to health and trained as a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, with the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition, where she graduated in 2016. The family finally moved to Ottawa in 2017 (after 30 years – her husband could no longer stay away from home) and is very happy to finally call Ottawa home after so many years of travelling.
Throughout the years, Susan has volunteered and worked combining her nursing skills and her love for food to help others improve their health.
