Susan (“Sue”) Jung is a Licensed Insolvency Trustee and is a graduate of the University of Western Ontario and the Ivey School of Business.

Sue meets personally with clients in the London, Stratford, Chatham, Clinton and Goderich and supervises the Windsor office.
Sue’s approach to clients is simple – how would she like to be treated if she were in financial difficulty? She would want to be treated with respect, dignity and understanding and that is exactly the person that greets every client who comes through her door. Sue understands that finances are private and that reaching out for help is hard for a lot of people. Her clients are relieved to find a compassionate and down to earth person who truly cares and has the experience and knowledge to help them sort through the options. This combination allows Sue to help clients find the solution that is best for them. Sue understands that sometimes bad things happen to good people. Sue describes herself as one of the luckiest people in the world. Why? She is just a good person who gets to spend each day helping other good people.
