She confronts challenges with poise in search of the best solutions. Suarez is the definition of a strong woman and any young person’s life would be much more improved with her guiding them.”

This accurately describes Joan, and the example she sets as a female leader pursuing her dream, which is ultimately for the good of all nature, animals and people.”
We encourage our residents and local business owners to highlight other inspirational women in our community who are making an impact in our city or in influencing others by using #HerStoryCS on social media with all the ways the nominee has contributed positively to Coral Springs.
