New Steering Committee MembersShare #317
Valerie Surh is a project management assistant with Glide Health Services in San Francisco. Glide Health Services is one of the several departments within Glide Foundation, a San Francisco non-profit serving the poor and marginalized community. She is currently helping organize the health clinic's renovation and is working closely with the renovation's contractors.
Valerie attended the University of California at Los Angeles where she graduated in 2005 with a B.S. in Physiological Sciences. She initially planned on a career in healthcare, but has changed course since college due to a keen interest in architecture, a field more closely suited to her creativity. Hoping to gain more exposure to architecture, she contacted Mui, who introduced her to OWA. Valerie is taking a drawing class through Berkeley Extension and plans on pursuing a master in architecture in the near future. She lives in Alameda, where she was born and raised, and spends her free time cooking, drawing, and traveling.
Suzanne Stewart is a space planner and FF&E designer on residential remodels in the Bay Area. She graduated from the UCB-X Interior Architecture and Design program. Her work has included project management and design for boutique hotel renovations in San Francisco.
Suzanne is a former docent at the SFMMA; a reluctant gardener, and pretty good cook. She is delighted to be part of OWA and looks forward to serving on the Steering Committee. Suzanne lives in Berkeley with her family.
