ABOUT THE PRESENTER                                   

 

Ivonne Perez-Suarez, Consumer Outreach Coordinator – Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services

Appointed to the Consumer Outreach Division in June 2012.  I serve consumers in South Florida by educating residents about steps they can take to avoid becoming victims of fraud and unfair or deceptive trade practices.  Responsible for expanding the department’s current initiatives to reach Florida’s nearly 20 million residents with important messages about their rights as consumers and helping identify the needs of South Florida’s consumers and ensuring we meet their needs with consumer assistance and information. I started my career with former United States Senator, followed by work as special assistant to three City of Miami Mayors (1990-1997), after which I served as Corporate Public Relations Manager at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables and went on to serve as Director of Communications for a Miami-Dade County Commissioner.  I hold a B.A. in International Relations with a Minor in History from Florida International University (1990).
