RiverLink welcomes Susan Andrew as the agency’s new development manager. Andrew brings experience as a fundraiser through previous positions at Buncombe County Schools, Communication Mark! and as an independent consultant. She and her husband, Mark, moved to Asheville in 1995 and were immediately impressed by RiverLink’s work to restore and revitalize the French Broad.
Susan brings a master’s degree in biology, plus experience in land and water protection from her time as the staff ecologist at the Southern Appalachian Forest Coalition. Her professional path also includes work as a science journalist, and her environmental news stories have received recognition from the Sierra Club, Wild South and the North Carolina Press Association.
Andrews looks forward to helping RiverLink expand community support for its ecological mission.
