Sue grew up in a family of adventurers with both her father and step- father being mountaineers and explorers. This gave her the opportunity to travel extensively with her family to India, Nepal and the Antarctic. She now lives with her husband on an organic kiwifruit and avocado orchard in Katikati.
For the last 15 years she has been taking groups trekking in Nepal, India and South America. She enjoyed the opportunity to meet and travel with so many people, making good friends on the way, including those who have taken several tours with her. Participants on her tours value her relaxed but very well-organised approach to tour managing.
