In 2007 Suzy came to the Cambridge Self-Help Food Bank seeking help with providing food for her three children. As a single mother she was finding feeding growing teenagers was an ongoing demand. With assistance from staff Suzy was accepted into Small Steps to Success Program. After successfully completing this 13 week program she proceeded to Conestoga College in Social Services.
In 2011 Suzy was hired as a Community Outreach Worker.
In 2012 Suzy was named by the YWCA of Cambridge as Woman of Distinction.
