- Grants Management and SupportBeneficiary Coordinator
Suyin has been a beneficiary coordinator since the start of KF, but is now limiting her role to working with only a few long-time award recipients.
Suyin’s work background is in nursing and counselling psychology. Since meeting the dharma, she and her husband Doug Rickson founded Rigpa Canada. In the late 1990s they became students of Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche. With Rinpoche’s blessings, in the early 2000s she and Doug spent several 3-month stints in eastern Bhutan at Chador Lakhang, teaching conversational English to the 80+ monks. That experience brought some of the greatest joys of their lives.
KF has been a huge part of my life since its inception, when Cangioli and I chatted about such an organization. It has been deeply heartwarming to see its growth and impact throughout the world. Rinpoche is my guide!
