Suzie Pollak Becker

Community Engagement Specialist

Born and raised in New York City, Suzie Becker studied archaeology in the Middle East then transferred and graduated from SUNY with a degree in Sociology. She discovered immediately that the ways in which ‘groups interact with and impact each other’ would become the cornerstone of her future journey. 

It was while managing a diverse portfolio of investment grade commercial and residential properties, that she took on the role of Director for several NYC Housing Authority homeless shelters- both adult and family services. Upon developing her expertise in building and facility operations, she was recruited as Project Manager by an investment group to lead the redevelopment of decommissioned United States Air Force base housing into the first “Active Adult” planned community in the Adirondacks. This role required primary research, strategic planning, lead generation and- most importantly- the ability to connect and collaborate with communities, municipalities, clients and vendors to obtain permitting, plan infrastructure and create revenue for the multi-phase development. Upon becoming a mother over a decade ago, Suzie entered the field of education- first as a teacher and then as Education Director. She was recruited as Executive Director to work on establishing the first Jewish high school in Northeast Florida, which was successfully absorbed by the local K-8, creating the intended opportunity for population growth for that target demographic. 

Suzie has worked cross functionally in small and large companies, alongside technical teams, customer service agents, academics, nonprofit administrators, as well as board members- both professionally and in positions of volunteer leadership. She has coached teams and boards to successful ambassadorship and welcomes the opportunity to create an engaging, inspired and meaningful environment wherever she is called to find innovative solutions. 

Suzie dedicates her free time to creating a positive impact on our community by volunteering for local nonprofit and community service agencies, facilitating workshops for teens and book clubs for adults on “Tools for Character Development," chairing the Social Action Committee of the Jewish Federation, on the JCA Cultural Arts Committee, as a member of the JFCS Speakers Bureau and as a multimedia and spoken word artist. She hosts a weekly podcast, “Schmooze with Suze,” where she discusses culture, values and global citizenship with thought leaders and change-makers.

Outside of the school system, she is an all-around musician that performs in a band, as well as mixing, mastering, and writing for other up-and-coming artists. Victoria Canady-Anderson also worked with the Cathedral Arts Project in the past as a teaching assistant, a teaching artist, and the Program Manager. This gave her the opportunity to step into the nonprofit world and understand the administrative side to education and the arts in Jacksonville.

Victoria has always had a love for the performing arts. She grew up loving to sing and to perform. Victoria attended LaVilla SOTA and Douglas Anderson SOTA where she played the trumpet, sang in the chorale groups, participated in the FMEA All-State chorus, and won the Grady-Rayam female vocalist award/scholarship. She currently performs with The 7 Street Band as one of the lead vocalists. She still loves to attend local theater performances, and she loves producing and engineering new music.

Dance awakens the imagination. Movement is the medium of this awakening. And our bodies are the instrument through which this invisible nexus becomes visible. This philosophy is the epicenter of Paisley’s creative and pedagogical practice. As a dance educator, performer, choreographer, and activist, Paisley explores this professional web with creative zeal and passionate advocacy. A humble introduction to dance and theater studies as a youth growing up in Savannah, GA exposed her to the transformative power of participation in the arts. Committed to honing her artistic skills early on, Paisley attended Savannah Arts Academy, a local performing arts high school, and became an avid community theater performer. Beyond high school, pursuing a degree in dance was a no-brainer. Since graduating from Jacksonville University with a BFA in dance performance, Paisley has worked as a dance teaching artist and freelance choreographer for various organizations and school districts; and most recently, completed an MFA degree in choreography from JU. Her professional experience also includes more than a decade of teaching in public schools - designing and implementing arts integrated curriculum and after-school dance programs. In 2021, Paisley joined Crossroads Dance Indy, a modern dance company based in Indianapolis, where she performs and choreographs work for the stage.
