DR. SUE HERE...
I am your event personality, I can be your author, guest-writer, entertainer, story-teller, keynote or motivational speaker. Over the years I have worked in various artistic capacities – professional actress, esteemed arts administrator, guest-writer and cultural arts workshop coordinator. I have been a member of the British Actor’s Equity and have toured extensively in the UK, USA and the Caribbean.
I recently published my second book of poetry called "I am Jamaica" and this follows closely my first book of poetry “Ode to Miss Lou…From the Soul of Dr Sue” – a Jamaica 50 Collectible Edition. In 2015 I wrote and performed the title piece “WE” for Broward County’s 100th Birthday extravaganza as part of their ‘Duende’ celebrations.
Dr. Sue, as I am known in the entertainment world, will bring effervescence, spirit, humor and edification to your event. My extensive and diverse work and life experiences make my material and delivery rich, humorous and enlightening.
Dr Sue can be seen (and hired for) Emceeing, performing and/or presenting at various community and National events – concerts, galas, graduations, parties and community events.
