Suzie grew up in southern California and originally came to the central coast to earn her B.S. in Animal Science at Cal Poly. After graduation, she was working in animal nutrition and medical marketing before returning to school to complete a degree in dietetics and nutrition. Suzie started volunteering at the SLO Food Bank in early 2016 before joining the nutrition education outreach team. She now oversees our relations with nonprofits and local government organizations. In her spare time, Suzie loves to enjoy the amazing outdoors hiking, rock climbing, or trail running with her husband and dogs.
