She grew up in Ajax attending Archbishop Denis O’Connor Catholic High School before earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Economics and Finance from Ryerson University. Susan was proud to earn the certified professional accountant (CPA) designation in 2018.
In recent months she fought a fierce battle against cancer and amazed everyone around her with her strength of spirit and positive outlook.
