After a career ending injury, and a lot of encouragement from her Father, she began coaching a group of special needs athletes.
Over the years Suzie’s involvement grew to include coaching at the recreational and competitive level, working as a floor supervisor, mentor coach, clinician, judge, meet director and programs coordinator at the club level.
She has been instrumental in developing the sport of Acrobatic Gymnastics in Ontario.
She is the co-creator and co-meet director of the National Acro Cup, and Vice Chair of the Acrobatic Technical Committee for G.O, and the Team Ontario manager.
Suzie coordinated Gymnastics demonstrations for the Pan Am Games at the CNE Sportszone, and was a Press Operations Supervisor for Gymnastics, during the Games.
Most recently, Suzie has been a guest speaker at the CAO conference, and attended the 1st Vegas Acro Cup as the Team Manager for the Oakanagan Gymnastics Club.
