Prior to committing her work full time to NSOF, Suzanna played an integral role in getting the organization up and running by serving as the Director of Programs. Additionally, she had previously founded and directed a nonprofit in the state of Florida while also running a small, bio-pharmaceutical company.
As the spouse of an active duty EOD operator, Suzanna has witnessed firsthand the struggles and gaps within the NSO community over the last decade, and she jumped at the opportunity to take part in providing our families the programs and assistance they deserve. She is dedicated to greatly expanding the reach and impact of NSOF and is passionate about ensuring all Navy EOD, Navy Divers, and their families are recognized, fully supported, and never forgotten.
Suzanna is currently completing her Master's in Public Administration, is part of the Academy for Non-profit Excellence, and is an active member of the Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce. She is the proud mother of two and wife of an active duty Navy EOD operator who she met while attending the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, CA.
