Susan Penner comes by her interest in civic politics honestly. Her father served five terms as a Steinbach City Councillor prior to Susan running for the same office.
Having grown up in an environment that values public service, combined with her business and volunteer experience, Ms. Penner brings a unique perspective to Steinbach City Council. Ms. Penner's career spans over 15 years as a marketing professional. She has worked with a wide range of clients from the manufacturing industry to the service sector, including large multi-national corporations and smaller non-profit organizations. Ms. Penner has an Honours Bachelor of Commerce Degree in Marketing and her MBA. She currently works as a business and marketing consultant for her firm Guideline Marketing.
In 2008, Ms. Penner initiated and organized the fundraising and implementation of the play park at Les Magnusson Park. Contributing to the community in this way ended up sparking her desire to find other ways to get involved, leading her to run for City Council. Since being elected, she has enjoyed serving on the Age Friendly Community Council and the Steinbach RCMP Advisory Group in addition to her role as Councillor.
She and her husband Jon have three children.
