The Fleurieu App team comprises experienced media professionals located across the Fleurieu Peninsula of South Australia who are passionate about delivering quality, accurate information for locals and visitors.
After spending time working with the team at the highly successful Marlborough App in New Zealand, Susie returned to the Fleurieu Peninsula in early 2019 with her husband and three daughters.
Moving to Silver Sands Susie realised there was a need for the Fleurieu region to have an app that could provide news, sport, event and business information to residents and visitors to the region.
Originally from Buckleboo on the Eyre Peninsula, Susie has an affinity with regional areas and a passion for promoting their achievements.
As well as creating and running the New Zealand app, Susie’s background includes photography, tourism, viticulture and agriculture.
