Susan Harris is a speaker, author, former teacher and a Christian. Since age 9, she has been standing in front of audiences, and has inspired thousands in schools, churches, conferences and youth groups to find fulfillment in life. Her beliefs and experiences have helped women in particular to discover practical ways of leading positive and intentional lives. Her messages have been presented with clarity, conviction and humour.
Susan obtained her Bachelor of Science in Management Studies from the University of the West Indies and then completed a post graduate Diploma in Education. She went on to earn a Certificate in Theology from the West Indies School of Theology, a Certificate in Writing from the Institute of Literature in Connecticut, and a Certificate in Human Resources and Industrial Relations from Athabasca University. As a professional, Susan held the designation of Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) in Canada from 2008-2014, and is currently a member of the Saskatchewan Association of Human Resources Professionals. She holds membership in Saskatchewan Writers Guild, SaskBooks Publishers, and The Word Guild in Ontario.
Susan can adapt to audiences and geographic conditions, and she attributes this to the exposure of city living, island living and rural living. Winter seasons have seen her interchange a briefcase and a shovel, as she tosses snow in high heeled boots and executive suit. No matter the wear or the place, kindness and compassion are displayed in her life. Prayer is the cornerstone of her life and ministry, and she would advise that you cannot cut corners with prayer.
Susan was a teacher for 12 years (still holds a Professional A Certificate) and has worked in human resources and management. She is married and has one daughter. Born and raised in the sparkling island of Trinidad, she now makes her home with her husband, daughter and Smokey the gregarious cat, on the lush prairies of Melville, Saskatchewan.
