Susan Shacter was born in Hinton, Alberta where she spent the first ten years of her life. Susan is a member of the Métis Nation of Saskatchewan and also a member of Gabriel Dumont Local 11 in Saskatoon. As a lifelong learner, Susan recently earned a B.A. (Hons) in Sociology as Most Outstanding Graduate in the program. During this time she also completed a certificate in Indigenous Justice and Criminology. Prior to returning to school to earn her undergraduate degree, Susan completed a program with SIAST in Computer Information Systems, after which she worked as a Computer Programmer for more than 13 years.
As the Indigenous Student Liaison Officer, Susan is grateful for the opportunity to meet students in their home communities. She strongly believes that meeting students where they are at is an important first step in learning how to best support prospective students as they begin to consider pursuing a postsecondary education.
In her spare time, Susan enjoys spending time with friends and family, volunteering with her spiritual community, and is actively engaged with her local Métis community.
