Susan Rawlings is a born and raised Edmontonian. Growing up she had a passion for music and singing. These days her singing career is best seen at any karaoke establishment.

In 2004, she obtained a Bachelor of Science in Medical Laboratory Science degree. For five years she worked full time as a Medical Laboratory Technologist in Transfusion Medicine at the Royal Alexandra Hospital and in Medical Microbiology at the University of Alberta Hospital.

In 2009, Susan began her law school career by completing the Program of Legal Studies for Native People, which opened her eyes to Aboriginal issues. In the fall, she began law school at the University of Alberta and was heavily involved in several extracurricular activities, and most notably, with the Aboriginal community. She was an executive member of the Aboriginal Law Student’s Association (ALSA) for all three years, eventually becoming the president of ALSA. In 2013, she was called the bar with the Law Society of Alberta. She continues to maintain a relationship with the Faculty of Law at the U of A, with a focus on mentoring Indigenous law students. Among other areas of law, she gained extensive experience in family law at a mid-sized law firm. She has participated in all aspects of family law litigation, including Court of Queen’s Bench and Provincial Court trials.

While she has litigation experience, the best interest of the children remains Susan’s priority. She believes that keeping matters non adversarial are in the best interest of children. She recognizes that every breakdown of a relationship is a difficult life event and is pleased to be able to assist people get through this time as smoothly as possible.

Currently, Susan is on the legal aid roster and volunteers with Edmonton Community Legal Centre. When she is not trying to make the world a better place, she enjoys travelling and spending time with her friends and family, in particular her two young nieces.
