Susan is the Executive Director of Seed Your Future – a national movement to promote horticulture and encourage more young people to pursue careers working with plants. She joined Seed Your Future in September 2016 and brings with her more than twenty five years of experience working with nonprofit organizations. For most of her career, she has worked with organizations that focus on youth development and providing children, youth and families with opportunities to grow and thrive.
She is passionate about the outdoors and the positive impact it can have on physical and emotional health. She is dedicated to finding more opportunities to move the traditional classroom outside, thus providing youth with the opportunity to learn about — and in — the natural world.
