I thrive through exploration, discovering, sharing, and caring.

My drive is to connect people to nature, the ocean in particular, and to encourage for a more conscious and natural way of life. I believe adventure gives one a new set of eyes, expands the worldview, and one will act accordingly.

But alone I can only do much. I’m welcoming collaboration aligned with the oceanpreneur values of ethical adventure travel, conscious living, simplicity, zero waste, ocean conservation, outdoor and natural lifestyle.

Tourism Destination Sustainability

On a project base I work with tourism destinations and organizations to improve their sustainability, branding, development and positioning. Focus areas: nature-based tourism, island-based tourism, water sports tourism, sailing tourism, coastal destinations, climate change adaptability and resilience. My extensive exploration in different regions of the world gives me a comparitative and birds eye outlook on the global versus local challenges and opportunities.

Exploration

I hike, dive, sail, drive the extra mile and meter to find out what's around the corner and why. If you need a destination explorer and investigator to assess, research, document or receive a different perspective, I'm your girl. I explore by foot, sailboat, campervan, and sooner or later by landrover.

Network, referrals & clients

During +15 years of nomadic living and travel in all continents with different means of transport I've become particularly helpful in building bridges between people, organizations, vessels, projects in relation to sailing, ocean conservation, freediving, nomadic living and travel, digital nomads, kitesurf and surf travel. To better connect you with other ocean minded lifestyle designers, projects and organizations, I can communicate and connect you to relevant contacts. Also, I invite you to join the Ocean Nomads network where I, and other ocean nomads build bridges and connections to accelerate missions and projects.

Suzanne is living her dream in a nomad lifestyle. She promotes meaningful projects aiming to awake awareness and... propose solutions for the increasing dangers our oceans and their communities are facing due to irresponsible/uncontrolled human action.With outstanding determination and strength, she lives and acts very consistently according to her values grounded in environmental protection, sustainability-oriented solutions and network creation between likeminded people working in similar fields of action.In my opinion, sailing adventures organized by Captain Suzanne are: 1. A reward for the senses by discovering incredibly beautiful places and breathtaking sceneries. 2. An unbeatable way to get introduced into the nice world of sailing, 3. An open window to learn watching our world and the people from another more conscious perspective. I see her as an inspirational person who, with her example, inspire others with ideas and proposals to define or redefine life projects and use inner energy for more noble purposes.Please gather support in every possible way at your hand for Suzanne. Our oceans need strong committed people like her to advocate for our natural resources and leave them intact for the generations to come.read more

Instagram.She has a deep love for the sea and she is helping others to experience the same. It was an amazing experience to sail with her. She constantly inspired us to explore, to test things out and enjoy her little surprises along the way.I highly recommend to sail with her and was always feeling safe with her at the helm.read more
