About Sue

Sue is an academic who has taught health science for 15 years at all levels, from vocational education and short courses to higher education degree programs. Previously she’s worked as an Occupational Therapist in mental health, paediatrics, and soft tissue therapy.

Currently working as a Learning Designer, Sue is pursuing her passion in the democratisation of education: working to ensure that the life-transforming benefits of learning are more widely available and accessible.

At home, Sue is a “pragmatic minimalist”, focusing on what really works for family life. In a small apartment with a husband, young son, bulldog and thriving urban garden, she enjoys living the city version of tiny living. She’s interested in the ways that urban living nurtures active lifestyle and supportive community.

Though she loves escaping to the bush for a ramble, Sue believes movement and nature are for everyone, and is often found exploring local spaces: urban hiking, cycling and urban foraging with her family.
