Susie oversees Wasatch Community Gardens’ Job Training Program on the Green Phoenix Farm, which provides opportunities for women facing homelessness. Susie has a passion for helping people build connections with one another and brings to the team experience in group facilitation, teaching, and nonprofit program management. Serving in this role at WCG has allowed Susie to reconnect with her roots. She grew up in Northern Michigan and learned from a young age, working at her family’s garden center, how gardening and outdoor recreation brings people together and teaches invaluable life lessons. Susie believes that people, just like plants, thrive with the right support and works to provide that for job training participants.
