Suzanne Hartman

Senior Lecturer


Suzanne joined Coventry University in 2021 as a lecturer in Tourism Management and developed a top-up course on Health Tourism. Before that, she was a lecturer in Tourism Management for HZ University in the Netherlands for two years, where she focused on Health Tourism, followed by a role as Lecturer Health & Wellbeing at HAS University in the Netherlands.

She has travelled and worked in different countries around the world from the beginning of her career, starting as a flight attendant with British Airways, working in cabin crew training and managing projects in airline catering. After managing a hotel in Malawi for several years, she decided to continue as an educator and achieved the Dutch equivalent of PG Cert in 2021.

As an active participant in a variety of outdoor sports and working as a yoga teacher, she developed a specific interest in adventure tourism and health benefits of tourism, which motivated her to pursue an MSc in Health and Wellbeing.
