Susan Surgener

Susan's time spent working in the higher education sector spans almost 20 years.

Susan really enjoys working with, and working for students and has a great interest in seeing students finding out what they are good at and then going on to do well in their work and in their lives. In fact, if you were to put her through a career assessment inventory she would likely come out as people focused, investigative and administrative; which, luckily, is a pretty good match for the job she actually does.

Beyond work, Susan has an interest in all things artistic despite (self-confessed) no real talent for any of them: can't paint, can't sew, can't act, can't dance and can't sing. Subsequently, she sticks to reading and writing!
