It was a passion for writing, though, that earned Sue a degree in English from York University. She later found the Radio and Television Broadcasting program at Seneca College – sparked by a newspaper job advertisement for voiceover artists – and graduated with honours. Sue runs her own master of ceremonies business called Professional MC, is co-owner of Sportsbras.ca, is on the board of directors for Women Talk Canada and is a very busy wedding officiant.
