She began her physiotherapy career at a sports medicine clinic in Calgary, AB where she completed her Orthopedic Manual Therapy Levels. Suzanne also completed an Advanced Manual Therapy series of courses which included the craniovertebral and TMJ regions, cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine regions as well as the treatment of muscle and neural tension. She  completed her acupuncture training (AFCI) before returning to Vancouver in 2005.
