Suzanne Matyas - Marketing and Communications Manager

Suzanne began her journey as SFDC’s Marketing and Communications Manager in July, 2014.  Beforehand, she had lived as a die-hard Wahoo while attending the University of Virginia, from which she received a degree in Urban and Environmental Planning  and a minor in Architecture.  After graduating and some brief international frolicking, Suzanne applied her knowledge firstly, at an environmentally- focused nonprofit and secondly, at a large engineering/consulting/ architecture organization.  Suzanne is (technically) a Southerner as she is a native of Northern Virginia, and therefore, is naturally very welcoming to lively, polite conversation and being engaged in the local community; please don’t hesitate to contact her.
