Suzanne in Production for the Food Category 



Suzanne in Production (New York)

Production Manager, Food Network 

Three fun facts about Suzanne:
  • I visited two different countries a year for 10 years.
  • I’ve always lived within three miles of the beach.
    I cannot imagine life without cheese!
The best thing about working at SNI is, without question, the employees! The employees at Scripps Networks Interactive are some of the best, most innovative and perceptive in the business.
The greatest thing I love about my job at SNI is the challenge of managing a production from the planning stages through taping. When the last segment of a run wraps, it’s a great feeling knowing I helped make it all come together. Being the production manager on the first 3D cooking show, when SNI and DIRECTV co-produced Guy’s Big Bite, was a really unique experience.
My office is in Chelsea Market in New York City. The city is an amazing place to work; the energy of the city is a constant source of inspiration.
To be successful at SNI takes dedication and determination!  
My favorite SNI show would be Guy’s Big Bite. I’ve worked with Guy for years and shooting at his home in Santa Rosa was a great experience. The show really draws you in. There is something really inviting about watching him cook in his own backyard kitchen with family and friends, and the food is always “off the hook!”
One of my favorite tips I’ve learned from watching the shows is so simple but so good. I learned to add lime zest to sour cream from Tyler Florence. I already love sour cream, but that hint of lime really makes whatever you’re using it with that much more exciting to bite into.
Scripps Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs have helped me gain a deeper sense of social responsibility within our community. The company is constantly giving employees the opportunity to give back through efforts like United Way, Share Our Strength and City Harvest or various other drives spearheaded by the internal Employee Action Committee. In New York, I help organize an employee auction every year for Share Our Strength​. It’s wonderful to come together with your co-workers and give back to the community.
