Susan Echlin and her husband Vance own Living Sky Winery by Perdue. An Alberta transplant from a cattle ranching background, she moved to Saskatchewan to attend the University of Saskatchewan where she received a Master’s degree in Political Science. Before that, she spent many years living and working around the world, giving her an appreciation of different cultures and new ways of thinking about what creates community.
Susan also works for the City of Saskatoon as a Communications Consultant for long-term urban planning. She has served on several provincial boards and in 2012, she and Vance were named Canada’s Outstanding Young Farmers.
In her spare time, Susan loves being outdoors - hunting, fishing, riding, hiking, skiing - pretty much anything that gets her outside and moving.
