Until mid way through 2017 Sue thoroughly enjoyed her role as Manager of Short Courses, School of Fashion and Textiles at RMIT, Melbourne. Following ill health she is currently taking time out to get well.
Whist at RMIT (and previously at CAE, Centre for Adult Education, Melbourne) she encouraged the pursuit of health and well-being as curator of fashion, arts and crafts short courses where she enjoyed managing a diverse range of courses in which students could learn new skills, become inspired by new knowledge and explore the integral role that creativity can have in the health of the individual.
Sue practiced Naturopathy and Massage (BHSc WHM, Adv Dip Nat, ITEC Dip Msg) for more than 10 years, with a particular interest in women’s health, fertility, mental health and stress management. As a boutique Naturopathy practice, Crafting Health combined science based knowledge with a practical yet crafty approach to achieving optimum wellness. It embodied crafting principles in its development of treatment strategies and patient orientated health goals – creativity, tradition, resourcefulness, inspiration, taking action, taking care, sustenance, community mindedness, education, sharing of skills and the passing down of knowledge from generation to generation. Crafting Health is currently not taking new patients.
