Over the last two decades Sookie has honed strong instincts in storytelling, producing, directing, casting and writing factual series for A&E, Discovery, National Geographic and more. For Highway Thru Hell, now in its 11th season, Sookie was integral in building solid relationships with stakeholders on the ground and in many levels of government in order to gain access and trust. An adept Producer with a Project Management background, Sookie is just as comfortable managing crews in remote mountain locations as well as at events with hundreds of thousands of people. Her initial foray into media was working on the sets of hip hop music videos and live TV in Toronto. Since then work has taken her to Montreal to direct and produce Pyros for Discovery Canada and to LA to work with the casting team of Intervention for A&E. Now in Vancouver, Sookie uses her instincts to develop great characters and factual series for Great Pacific Media.
