Protecting Snohomish County and Camano Island’s natural resources is Suzi’s passion. She has decades of service as a volunteer board member for various local non-profit organizations to protect and restore salmon habitat and improve our community’s quality of life. Most notably, her service with the Cama Beach Foundation (current), Stilly Snohomish Fisheries Enhancement Task Force (Sound Salmon Solutions), and Puget Sound Partnership has been vital to the many successful projects these organizations have contributed to our region.
Suzi created Snohomish County’s watershed education program 20 years ago and has managed it since its inception. This educaton program is now the largest local government education program in western Washington. She is highly effective at developing innovative and creative parttnerships, and thinks outside-the-box to overcome challenges and achieve meaningful results.
