Susan is a self-proclaimed “Jack of all trades.” She loves the outdoors and loves working with people. She has a degree in Applied Science majoring in Gerontology and has worked in sales for 15 years in the outdoor and sporting goods industries. She has ultimately landed behind the scenes at Freedom Marine as a key support person. Susan might be ordering branded merchandise for customers one day and hiring hostesses for trade shows the next. No matter her task, she performs it with graceful determination, always wanting the best for Freedom customers, not only as the wife of founder Don Young, but as a person whose commitment to excellence is fundamental to her nature.
Freedom Marine is a true family business with benefits flowing in both directions as customers profit from the company’s wholesome values and the family itself prospers from complete immersion in the boating lifestyle.
Susan loves how she, Don and their three young “half mermaid” daughters have unlimited access to the joys of boating and its inherent quality time. “Imagine being up in Princess Louisa Inlet, pulling your children on a tube behind an Axopar with Chatterbox Falls in the background,” she says. “It’s incredible. I always stop when I’m out there and think to myself, how lucky we are to live on the west coast and have boating be such a large part of our lifestyle.
”Speaking for the entire Young family Susan says, “We are extremely proud of Freedom Marine and appreciate the healthy and adventurous way of life it brings to us.”
