Healthy Hive service areas focus on design and facilitation of:

  • community and stakeholder consultations
  • strategic planning and visioning processes
  • community-based research
  • program evaluation
  • development of innovative training and mentorship programs

While the Principal Consultant is involved in every project, Healthy Hive has a pool of professional collaborators which are utilized depending on the size and scope of the project. The pool of professionals includes: professional artists (multi-disciplinary), professional mediators, urban planners, and educators.

Sue has both a depth and breadth of scope to her background and resulting professional practice.  Sue is a professional practicing mediator, experiential educator and public speaker, researcher, and innovative program developer.  To highlight just some of Sue’s roles she has been a sessional professor teaching various conflict resolution and restorative justice courses at the University of Winnipeg’s Menno Simons College for over ten years, Executive Director of a neighborhood renewal corporation, an Associate Trainer with Mediation Services for over 15 years, a grants officer with the Manitoba Arts Council, and now a successful business owner.
