Kelly Suttles
GIS Specialist
Kelly Suttles earned a master’s degree in Natural Resources and Geographic Information Systems from North Carolina State University to visualize and analyze data to inform complex and multidisciplinary decision making. While she is very connected to the natural world, she is more interested in how people can have a more positive impact on the places they live, especially when it comes to land use planning. She has found an irresistible challenge in the Center’s data-driven approach to finding community-based solutions to complex housing and community problems. Her current work at CHCS focuses on the City of Rocky Mount, NC. In this role, she develops data visualizations to illustrate housing conditions in certain neighborhoods within Rocky Mount. These data will inform current efforts to proactively address housing affordability within these historic neighborhoods
