Rotary Minute: New Member Kim Suarez

I was born and raised in a very small town in Eastern NC and attended Northampton County East High School which led to the opportunity to attend the NC School of Science and Math as I searched for a more dynamic educational endeavor. I attended UNC-Chapel Hill, graduated, and embarked upon a career in the pharmaceutical industry in Atlanta.  I spent some time living in different cities around the country; Pittsburgh, Louisville, Northern New Jersey. Ultimately, I was led to discover my passion for the nonprofit industry when I took on a new role with the American Heart Association managing social events and eventually as the Senior Director of Development in Orlando, FL. I returned to North Carolina a few years ago with my currently 13 year old daughter (Elena), and my 10 year old son (Peyton) to work as the Director of Development at Durham Nativity School. About 8 months ago, I accepted my current position as the Managing Director of Development at Teach For America working to help end educational inequity in Eastern North Carolina. I am really looking forward to being a member of the Rotary Club for many reasons, but I am especially excited to be a part of an organization that will allow and enhance my ability to give back to the community alongside my peers.
