Suzi Youngberg

Suzi is a songwriter, poet, story-teller, music lover and Daddy's girl. She has been in the Keys since 1997; she moved down with her husband Scott, a musical performer and songwriter, and they write songs and even sing together from time to time. After a long career in corporate sales, traveling all over the southeastern U.S., Suzi decided it was time to not only live and love in the Florida Keys, but it was time to make her living here and give more back to the community. She sells advertising for Florida Keys Media in addition to hosting Classic Country Sunday Night (or as she says, "My Daddy's country.")  She also volunteers for community events and charitable organizations; she's on the board of the Upper Keys BPW, the Event Lead for the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life, and more. Read Suzi's poetry, songs and scribbles, and hear what song she's listening to today at SuzisWorld.com.
