Susan joined the Dept. of Management and Marketing at the Edwards School of Business in 2008 after teaching courses in Writing, Literature, and Popular Culture at the University of Western Ontario, St. Thomas More College, and the University of Saskatchewan. In 2007, she received a USSU Teaching Excellence Award. At ESB, she teaches COMM 100 (Business Communications I) and COMM 300 (Business Communications II). In these courses, students study a spectrum of Business Communications concerns, from individual presentation to the larger issues of Ethical Communications, CSR, and Media Relations.
Susan completed her B.A. in English at the University of Saskatchewan. Upon graduation, she worked in Public and Media Relations for Persephone Theatre, The Grand Theatre Company, and Neptune Theatre. Returning to Saskatchewan for her Master's degree, Susan continued to work in communications in Saskatchewan and Ontario. In addition to a variety of projects in a range of media, Susan was also a regular contributor to The Green and White, The Saskatoon StarPhoenix, and CBC Radio Saskatchewan. Since returning to the University of Saskatchewan as a teacher, Susan has worked with a number of campus units to research, develop, and facilitate a number of new communications ventures.
Currently completing her doctorate at the University of Western Ontario, Susan has published, presented, and taught on a variety of topics, most related to late Medieval, Renaissance, and Early Modern English literature (her dissertation deals with the literary representations of childbirth in English literature from the mid-sixteenth to the late seventeenth centuries). Apart from her pursuits in historical literature, Susan is interested in popular culture (especially representations of class and gender), image and reputation management, and the inter-relation of journalism and business.
Susan is a member of IABC and has served as a board member for the YMCA and Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan.
