Susan Stewart is an author and a speaker who will give youthe lift you need.  Susan helps people see the lighter side of life to lower stress, while nurturing strong mental health, in the face of adversity and uncertainty.

Professionally, there have been a few “plot twists” along the way. After earning a Theatre Arts degree from the University of Waterloo, Susan moved to Toronto to pursue a career in stand-up comedy. A few years into her comedy career, Susan started to battle depression and anxiety which eventually led her to quit the “biz”. When Susan got back on her feet, she wanted to get a “real job” and see how the other half lived. Thanks to a whole lot of serendipity and a wee bit of nepotism, Susan landed a job in a Human Resources office in the Ontario Government.

About a year into her HR career, Susan was asked to create and deliver a comical presentation about wellness at an upcoming professional development conference.  Susan’s presentation was a smash-hit and before she knew it, she was touring around the Ontario Government delivering her comical presentation about mental health at other events and conferences. In 2008, Susan took the leap of faith and left her HR career to deliver comical presentations about seeing the lighter side of life full time. For the past 12 years, Susan has been touring around North America making audiences laugh and sharing ways to meet the challenges of work and life with a positive outlook, and of course, a sense of humour.
