Smart Growth Vermont Welcomes New Program Director

Suzanne Blanchard has just joined the Smart Growth Vermont team as Program Director. Suzanne brings energy and passion to the organization and we are delighted to have her on board.

Prior to joining Smart Growth Vermont, after practicing environmental law for a decade in Washington, D.C. and Princeton, N.J., Suzanne was an editor and consultant. Suzanne graduated from Colgate University and Vermont Law School, worked for the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources, and clerked at the U.S Department of Justice. She has volunteered for community and professional organizations throughout her career.
Suzanne also serves on the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission and is a board member of the Chittenden County Metropolitan Planning Organization. She has worked on housing, land use and environmental issues for two decades. And, when she’s not working or volunteering her time, Suzanne likes to get out on the lake or the Island Line with her partner and two children.
