Sue Stanfield always wanted to own her own business. Four years ago, that dream became reality when she became president and founder of Take it Outside Inc. (TIO). Now, with four store locations across Nova Scotia, TIO has quickly become a leader in the active lifestyle revolution. Combining Sue’s passion for business with her firm belief in the power of health and wellness, TIO is a community resource for health and active lifestyles, including the recent addition of free yoga classes and boot camps.
A graduate of Acadia University with a Bachelor in Recreation Management, Sue previously held the position of Manager of Recreation Services for the Municipality of Colchester in addition to involvement in many community and volunteer roles, including the Canada Winter Games bid for the town of Truro.
As mom to 5-year-old Gabrielle and 4-year-old Jaxon, Sue truly understands the importance of the IWK Health Centre. She is looking forward to giving back to the people and place that she credits with helping to save their lives.
