Susan joined the Lynch Syndrome Australia team in 2014, driven by her own experience with Lynch syndrome and that of her family over four generations. She wants to help improve understanding of this condition amongst the medical profession and the general public, and to advocate on behalf of all those living with Lynch syndrome who face myriad medical, social and financial challenges.
Susan has many years’ experience in corporate social responsibility, stakeholder engagement and public relations in the UK, Europe and in Australia and is determined to make Lynch syndrome a mainstream and widely understood inherited cancer condition and to establish accepted standards of care and surveillance for those with this genetic disorder.
Susan has a Bachelor of Arts (hons) in Combined Arts and a Master of Science in Strategic Communications. She also speaks five languages, none of which, unfortunately, helps her understand research studies on cancer genetics!
