Kristen Suokko

Kristen Suokko came to the local food movement through her experience working on environmental issues. She spent her childhood and college years exploring the oceans and forests of New England, and the first part of her career in Washington, DC working at the Natural Resources Defense Council and the US Department of Energy.

In 1998 she moved to Charlottesville, Virginia to work in environmental philanthropy for the W. Alton Jones Foundation and the Blue Moon Fund. After a six-month trip to Asia with her family in 2012, Kristen returned to Charlottesville to first chair the board and then become Executive Director of Local Food Hub.
