Our People & Passion
Sue has enjoyed multiple careers, beginning her professional life as an attorney and then building an information management business into an internationally recognized organization.
Upon retirement, Sue was troubled by some of the most pressing issues facing America today—poverty, substandard education and housing, inadequate access to affordable health care, the vilification of immigrants, institutional racism as well as all of the other “isms” and “phobias” plaguing and dividing our country. A common theme in all of these issues is our failure to see all Americans as one humankind deserving of kindness, courtesy, dignity, and basic human rights.
Combining her passion for all things food, an extensive study of community cookbooks and their cultural representations and history, and a belief in the goodness of all people, Sue created Our Recipe for Unity℠, to help make a difference in our divided and often disaffected country.
As a business leader, Sue earned multiple honors both locally and nationally for executive leadership and for promoting diversity, and she brings those same qualities and values to the ambitious initiative that is Our Recipe for Unity℠. Sue also serves on the board of Communities in Schools LV, which empowers students to stay in school and achieve in life.
Matt Alexander, born and raised in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, and currently living in Philadelphia, is a dilettante in all things creative. He is an avid digital artist, a writer, and a cook who brings his interests, as well as a passion for social justice and experience in the LGBT+ community, to Our Recipe for Unity℠. Since Our Recipe for Unity℠’s inception and throughout its development, he has contributed his skills in graphic design, content writing, and web development.
