Dr Susanne Chadbourne joined our Residential College as an Academic Advisor in 2022. Here she shares the pivotal moment that saw her leave a PR career and land a role at Trinity.
Meeting with students, being part of the vibrant community at Trinity and working with likeminded people.
A children’s author and illustrator – I had visions of living like Beatrix Potter in the countryside with lots of animals for company. It still sounds rather lovely!
Taking a break from my career as a public relations consultant to do a master’s in History of Art. It led me to move to Australia, undertake a PhD and now my role at Trinity College!
Don’t Look Now. The way the beauty of Venice is shown is breathtaking (despite it being a horror movie).
I travelled to Peru and Bolivia when I was 19 and lived in a small village teaching English at the local school. It was a humbling experience to be part of a small community very far from my usual life in London, and I had to learn quickly how to communicate with very limited Spanish.
To listen to my gut and relax – as it will all work out ok!
More patience, kindness and open mindedness.
Watching my young daughter learn new skills every day – she is a constant source of entertainment and wonder.
