Write to Severn!
…and meet Susan Johnston. Susan is EA to Severn and to Severn’s sister, Sarika Cullis-Suzuki. She manages correspondence, speaking engagement requests, project coordination and most importantly, collaboration. She brings great professional experience to the team with a background in event management and planning, logistics coordination and operations administration. A mariner at heart, Susan has lived and worked on or near the water most of her life, and therefore cares deeply about healthy oceans (and she loves animals)! The three of us have a great, dynamic partnership and are always coming up with new ways to organize our energies towards creating change to a more just, diverse, and climate-friendly world.
We have news! Last November it was announced that Severn will become the Executive Director at the David Suzuki Foundation and she will begin her new role this coming fall 2021!
Severn is currently engaged in her PhD work on endangered language revitalization, while at the same time transitioning to her new role at the Foundation. You can read more about Severn’s new role in this article: This is the Transformation Decade.
These are exciting and busy times for our little team!
During these next several transition months (Spring, Summer and Fall 2021), Severn is restricting her availability for new projects, collaborations and speaking engagements to focus on her PhD work and interim David Suzuki Foundation commitments. We receive a high volume of email messages daily, so please do excuse any delays in our replies. Thank you for taking the time to reach out.
