Susie Ragland

Executive Director of Community Management

I’ve lived most of my professional life in the restaurant industry. I love this industry so much that I even married a chef (which, by the way, sounds better in theory than in reality – yeah, we eat a lot of takeout.)

Ride-or-die for restaurant led me down a wild path where I transitioned my nearly 15 year career with Applebee’s to digital marketing and consulting for a variety of clients with Stellar Digital. I switched from talking burgers and beers all day to well, ok, I still talk burgers and beers. But, I also dabbled and dove into pizza, cell phones, a coney tradition, smoothies, women’s retail fashion, make-up, natural pet products, politics, california sandwiches, barcades, legendary clam chowder sourdough bread bowls and even Guatemalan chicken and aguas frescas.

Fave Color: Purple (and also sparkles, and yes, that’s a color per my kiddo)
