Susana was born in Porto, Portugal. After a strong career in sales as a commercial director, she founded and ran a flourishing vegetarian and macrobiotic restaurant that evolved to feed the body, mind and soul as a spiritual center for holistic healing.

In 2008 she decided it was time for a change. She sold her business and began the trip of a lifetime. With a nearly empty backpack and full of curiosity, she began her quest to discover and learn from intentional and spiritual communities operating on principles of permaculture in Brazil. In 2011, she went to the United States, bought a motor-home and traveled throughout Central and North America. In the summer of 2012, she arrived in British Columbia and after visiting several places in this amazing province, she found Cortes Island and her heart told her that it was one of her places to call home in this world. Since then, she live half the year on Cortes island.
Vinho do Porto show
Susana has a passion for music since she can remember. Her grandmother was always listening to Fado and she was always surrounded by musicians and Djs that opened her taste to a lot of different genres. Coming to Cortes island, she started to perform at the CKTZ LipSyncs and realized how much she loves to share her culture and how much Cortesians love to receive it. So she decided to have her own radio show, where she can share all her Portuguese music background, being that from Portugal, from the ex Portuguese colonies or Brazil. Vinho do Porto show has as a common thread all songs in Portuguese language, and the genres varies between Fado, Rock, Pop, Blues, Dance, Samba, Jazz, Reggae, Hip-Hop, Folk, Bossa Nova, MPB, Forro, Choro, Frevo, Batucada, Maracatu, Morna, Semba, Marrabenta, etc.
