Suzanne Young, Board Member
Pampered Chef, Director
While growing up in Canada, Suzanne never considered she’d move to the US nor become a Pampered Chef consultant/leader. She grew up in Toronto mostly interested in the environment and the natural world. That lead to an undergrad degree in Environmental Studies and then to a Master of Science in Geomorphology. They moved from Vancouver to Exton in 1994 for her husband, David, to pursue his passion as a PHD in Metallurgical Engineering (melting Titanium!) After being home with 2 wonderful wee ones for a couple of years, she decided to start with Pampered Chef to earn enough money to take the CFP course. That never happened as she fell in love with Pampered Chef and the amazingly fulfilling world of Direct Sales. She became a leader (Director) in 2001 and currently has a team of ~ 230 team members scattered across the USA. As a member of WBC since 2004, she credits this organization with polishing her business professionalism. Now, between business, playing women’s Ice Hockey, bowling, golf, reading, WBC and frequent travel, life is very busy and very fulfilling!
