Suzy is an experienced series producer who has been creating content for both US and Canadian broadcasters for over 13 years. As the showrunner for Holmes and Holmes 3/Holmes 911, Save My Reno, Canada’s Handyman Challenge and many more, Suzy has learned the ins and outs of renovation/design production.
While she has expertise in lifestyle and reality programming, Suzy has also worked on several children’s series for TVOkids (Cutie Pugs, Now You Know) and PBS Kids (Odd Squad). She has a diverse and eclectic production background that includes scripted, union-based shows as well as lifestyle programs casting real people. She is as comfortable on set with Mike Holmes shooting a scene about load-bearing walls, as she is working with union puppeteers and animation markers in a green screen studio.
In 2013, Suzy started her own production company, Chatterbox Productions, focusing on lifestyle and factual-based programming. Shortly after founding Chatterbox, Suzy produced her first documentary short film, Synapse Dance (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q4yXyZjmWMI), through a bravoFACT grant. Synapse Dance saw great success as an award winner at the 2015 Austin Revolution Film Festival. The film was blogged about by the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research and featured in a BBC News story in 2018.
In 2020 Chatterbox Productions began service production on Dr. Cheddar, a kid’s series about kindergarten preparedness for TVOKids, combining her passion for factual and children’s programming in one delightful show (https://www.tvokids.com/school-age/dr-cheddar).
