Suzie is a California native that recently moved back to the area after both her and her family spent a little over a decade in Honolulu, Hawaii. As a fellow ocean lover, she knew she wanted to contribute more to protecting it and joined Surfrider San Diego several years ago as an active volunteer with the STOP Coastal Climate Impact committee member. It was within this committee, that she and other Surfrider members, had the opportunity to train on Climate Change with the Climate Reality Leadership group and Al Gore. Understanding the political climate in which we are now facing threatening years of progressive forward movement, Suzie is more than eager to help join the good fight in protecting our oceans. In her free time, she enjoys road trips with her family, a good concert, maybe a little yoga and playing with her 3 dogs (Lily, Blue and Gucci Gus) and her 2 cats (Luna and Mochiko Chicken, aka Chicken)
