Meet our newest staff members!

Just like Charlotte, our organization is growing. Since September we’ve added two new staff to the Sustain Charlotte team, and we want to take a moment to introduce them to you.

Jennifer Dean and Michael Zytkow

Michael Zytkow, Program Coordinator

Michael works to educate and empower the community through our programs. Prior to his work with Sustain Charlotte, Michael was a Field Organizer with Greenpeace working on a variety of renewable energy projects in Charlotte. He is a former CMS teacher having taught World History and African-American History at Garinger High School. Michael is an active participant in the community who is involved in a variety of issues to help improve quality of life in Charlotte. Michael holds a B.A. in Political Science and Religion from Wake Forest University. Michael is an avid gamer who organizes video game and board game events through POTIONS & PIXELS.

Jennifer Dean, Communications and Membership Coordinator

Jennifer works to market Sustain Charlotte’s mission and promote our events, as well as engage members and volunteers. Before joining Sustain Charlotte she worked for WakeUP Wake County, a smart growth organization in the Triangle, where she was part of the team that successfully passed the first voter referendum for public transit in Wake County. She has a B.S. in Marine Biology from UNC Wilmington and got her Master’s degree in Marine Affairs and Policy at the University of Miami. Jennifer loves all things Disney and completed her first half-marathon at Walt Disney World in 2017.

These two are already bringing creative ideas to the office and making an impact in our community. Next time you’re at a Sustain Charlotte event, stop by and say hello!
