Meet Our Team
Professional Angler Scott Martin, son of the legendary Roland and Mary Ann Martin, grew up fishing on the waters of Lake Okeechobee. He recognized that the lake was not just the lifeblood of his family's roots in Florida, but also for fellow anglers, local, business owners, South Florida residents reliant on its water supply, and the preservation of the Florida Everglades. With his knowledge of the various stresses impacting Lake Okeechobee's water and wildlife, Scott co-founded Anglers for Lake Okeechobee (AFLO). This initiative arose from his recognition of the urgent need for a unified voice advocating for the health and restoration of Lake Okeechobee.
Suzanne was born and raised in Clewiston with Lake Okeechobee in her backyard. At the age of 13, Suzanne moved to Tallahassee where she graduated from Florida State University with a marketing degree that would later benefit her as she joined her husband in his fight for healthy Florida waterways. As a Clewiston resident and Lake Okeechobee advocate, Suzanne has joined AFLO to protect and preserve the lake that is as important to South Florida as any other water resource. She is excited about partnering with AFLO and so many others in protecting and preserving this Great Lake. Water quality, water levels, and water flow, along with the habitat in Lake Okeechobee, are all key components in solving the water issues we are all facing in south Florida.
