“With over 30 years of experience working towards conservation milestones I have learned that trust relationships are the key to success. By listening to and respecting differing views we forge partnerships to craft solutions that secure clean air/water and land. As science sheds more light on the complexity of systems, solutions need to be crafted that address multiple environmental outcomes while supporting a robust economy. Now at MDE Suzanne works with water and science administration on Bay Restoration, and on major issues that require cross agency collaboration on climate resiliency.”
