A message from Suzanne:
Happy New Year Island Good Community!
This is going to be a year full of connecting, renewing, elevating and supporting one another with an aligned business vision. With that all setting the tone, I am thrilled to be joining the Island Good collective as Relationship & Business Development Manager. I am looking forward to strengthening our Island bonds and enhancing the way we promote and encourage business & partnership.
A little about me – I am an Islander through and through – homegrown in fact. Born and raised in mid-Vancouver Island, I have loved being witness to the incredible growing group of talented entrepreneurs and business owners creating local goods and edibles right here in our own ecosystem. I have been fortunate to have my career in tourism & hospitality on Vancouver Island for 15+ years, showcasing the beauty and bounty of our Island to visitors through corporate, social, leisure and recreation markets. I have always loved creating itineraries and experiences for visitors & fellow Islanders–“You’ve gotta go here! You’ve gotta eat here! You’ve gotta check this out! You can’t miss this local gem!”–to really showcase the pride in our landscape. I love to boast of our local flavours, culture and why we all have made beautiful Vancouver Island & Gulf Islands our home.
I consciously support local and give recognition to the businesses enhancing the health and wellness of our authentic Island lifestyle. I am raising an Island Good ambassador as well. It is important to me to demonstrate to my young son how fortunate we are to have abundance and nourishment from our local communities. Our slogan at home is“Team Work Makes the Dream Work.” We can do great things together.
To all of you who are contributing to the culture and vibrancy of our community – Thankyou! It is “All Good, Island Good!” I am so honored to have the opportunity to connect with each of you and continue strengthening our roots while we strive for more local sustainability, a stronger economy, reducing our carbon footprint, and creating more food security for us all to enjoy the abundance of what is readily available to us. My contribution and vision to this collective is to create strategy, awareness, interaction with the brand and truly celebrate the success of living, working and producing throughout the Island region.
Please reach out to me anytime. I look forward to our work together! Island Good is Great!!!
