Susan Stewart delivers a blend of wit and wisdom to help people see the lighter side of life. While giving audiences lots of good laughs, Susan delivers powerful messages about stress management, resiliency, and mental health.

After earning a theatre arts degree from the University of Waterloo, Susan began performing stand-up comedy around Toronto. 3 years into her comedy career, Susan fell into a clinical depression and struggled with anxiety which eventually led her to quit performing comedy. When Susan got back on her feet, she transitioned into the world of human resources as an organizational learning and development consultant with the Ontario Government.

A year into her Human Resources career, Susan was asked to create and deliver a comical presentation about wellness for an upcoming staff professional development conference. Susan’s presentation was a smash-hit which inspired her to leave her HR career to deliver comical presentations about wellness full-time. For the past 15 years, Susan has been entertaining audiences and sharing ways to meet adversity with courage, confidence, and a sense of humour.
