September 28 – LUNCHEON-MEETING
Feature Writer – Star Advertiser
“My Journey from Repairing Carburetors to Writing About Fish”
Come to the Professional Women’s Network on September 28 and meet the woman who exemplifies an entrepreneurial spirit and a quiet determination to educate others, making a difference in their lives.
When Susan Scott was a young Midwest nurse, her girlfriend said, “Your stories are so good that when I hear you tell them, I wish I was there. But I was.” Susan will share her story of growing up in a small Wisconsin town, in a working-class family, to become a marine biologist, newspaper columnist, photographer, author, artist and speaker.
A registered nurse since 1974, Susan earned a bachelor degree in biology from the University of Hawaii in 1985 and is a graduate of the University’s Marine Option Program. Along with her life partner, Craig Thomas, she founded a continuing medical clinic in Bangladesh that she has nurtured for 20+ years. Since 1987, Susan has written a weekly column, “Ocean Watch” for the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, and has written eight books about nature in Hawaii. Her ninth, on Fairy Terns, is in progress.
