Susanna was born in England, went sailing on a 90' luxury yacht in the Med and did a transatlantic flight to her new home in Tortola - all before she was six weeks old! Susanna considers herself privileged to be a true island girl. She enjoys sailing, archery, swimming, wakeboarding, snorkeling, diving, cooking, hiking, snowboarding, and traveling.
Susanna grew up around yachts. Her parents owned and operated an Irwin 65 called Endless Summer II, and she would be down on the docks helping prep for charter and eventually moved on to work on the yacht as stewardess and cook. She loves interacting with people from many parts of the world – yachting and hospitality flow in her blood! She has worked on many boats ranging from 40’ to 100’ both in the BVI and in the Mediterranean.
She enjoys giving people a vacation of a lifetime, whether it is by tantalizing your taste buds with a special cocktail, giving you an island tour, or simply by telling you stories about the British Virgin Islands.
