Susan Juby, Tyee Builder

We asked Susan and a few other Tyee Builders what "hooks" them (besides The Tyee, of course.) Here's what she said: "What hooks me? Usually the tail end of every unfortunate trend." -- Susan Juby

But today, Susan is ahead of the curve: she's supporting The Tyee's independent journalism at the outset of our new Tyee Builder program. Susan values independent, in-depth reporting, and thinks you should, too.
