Production Manager, Food Network
Three fun facts about Suzanne:
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
- 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 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
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.
