Born at RAF Cosford hospital in Shropshire, Suzi grew up in
Wolverhampton and studied at Westacres, Uplands, Smestow and
Wulfrun College. At school, she loved sport, art and drama and
worked parttime at the Grand Theatre as a lighting technician where
she experienced many crazy moments and met some stars.
Suzi then went on to study at the University of Wolverhampton
for a BA Honours degree in Business and Finance. She got her first
break into broadcasting with Sky Sports where she became the ‘first
lady’ of motorcycling and travelled the world covering MotoGP,
World Superbikes and Speedway.
In 2000 Suzi joined the BBC where she is now an integral member

Although Suzi now lives between London and France, Wolverhampton
still plays a big part in her life, visiting her family and
supporting her beloved Wolves. In 2004, Suzi became a patron for
