On the fish disease end of things, Sue was Administrator of the Whirling Disease Foundation, helping to fund scientific collaboration on this pervasive salmonid disease. A trained facilitator, Sue has been actively engaged in water education as well and has authored guides for practitioners, educators and landowners on topics such as wetlands management, streambank stabilization, and river basin protection. Sue is the producer of a handbook and documentary film with the same title: “Headwaters to a Continent.” Sue holds degrees in biology and natural resources management and enjoys the work she gets to do to bring global awareness to taimen protection.
