C.Sue McKinney, Managing Director, Vietnam   Sue McKinney
Sue is a California attorney and business consultant who settled in Vietnam in 1994. Sue has been instrumental in creating hundreds of jobs and exporting thousands of Vietnamese products. She graduated from Mills College and received her law degree from the University of Santa Clara. Sue was a Deputy District Attorney in Alameda County before entering private practice. In 1992-93 she served as California’s Chief Assistant Secretary of State engaged with Asian trade delegations until her move to Asia in 1994.

Sue has had the pleasure of witnessing and taking part in Vietnam’s extensive economic and social growth over the last 18 years.

In 2007, Sue met Dr. Tram and formed a strong bond with her. Through Sue’s ability to bring people and projects together, and based on the positive performance of Crila® in Vietnam, the two women combined their passion and experience to bring Crila® to the international market. Sue works closely with Dr. Tram and the Ministry of Science & Technology, the Ministry of Health, and the expanding Crila Health team, to provide this therapeutic herbal supplement for men and women worldwide.




Norman R. Farnsworth

Sue and Becky first met at an herbal medicine conference honoring Pharmacognosy “Grandaddy” Norman R. Farnsworth.  Brilliant, beloved, legendary; a man whose influence continues to beat loudly today and will continue to for years to come through those he has mentored and then those they have mentored.

About Norman… 

OH!  Norman SO reminds my of my Dad, the late E. George Roentsch, also a graduate of Massachusetts College of Pharmacy, veteran of the Korean War, with a penchant for being contrary, and also honored annually, as Norman is, but this time in an annual scholarship through the Professional Compounding Centers of America given each year to a compounding pharmacist deemed to best exemplify his innovative and sharing nature:  THE GEORGE ROENTSCH SCHOLARSHIP.  george-1

Thanks for joining us today!  What an exciting program.

I love being contrary, too – come by it “all natural,” you know! – so you never know WHAT will happen next… STAY TUNED


“Go to HEALTH!”
