Suzanne (Suzi) Zazycki joined OJPC in February 2023 as an attorney with the Second Chance Project. She has a J.D. from the University of Toledo, as well as a master’s in Environmental Science and a bachelor’s in Business Administration, both from Miami University (OH). Suzi practiced law in Toledo, Ohio and most recently served as the Associate Director of the Institute for the Environment & Sustainability at Miami University. In that role she managed research projects focused on assisting public-sector and non-profit clients with resolving environmental challenges. This work emphasized that complex problems facing our communities can only be resolved through deliberative, collaborative, community engagement – where the stakeholders from all walks of life are invited to do more than sit at the table – that they are key players in influencing the decision-making. Suzi will be providing legal services, outreach, and education to support all aspects of the OJPC Second Chance services.
