Suzanne Olive, Volunteer Coordinator
Suzanne Olive is from Saint Paul, MN and graduated from the University of Minnesota in May of 2017 with a B.A. in Sociology, a minor in Spanish Studies, and a second minor in Chinese. She knew about KOM for some time, having been involved in the Karen community at her church throughout high school and college. When Suzanne saw the opportunity to serve at the Karen Organization of Minnesota as an AmeriCorps VISTA she was very excited. Through the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits, she worked at KOM as a Community Outreach Coordinator from 2017 to 2018. After completing her year of service, Suzanne was grateful to have the opportunity to stay on staff at KOM as the new Volunteer Coordinator.
