Congratulations to our Salud Volunteer of the Month - 

Roxane Russo

Roxane started volunteering about 3 years ago. She says "the most valuable thing I've learned is how to hold a knife properly.  It's my favorite thing to share with new students, although most times they prefer their own way!' Her favorite thing about volunteering is meeting new people and learning from the pro's.  For favorite cuisines, she likesThai, Italian, & Mexican.  For dining out, she is a fan of Fickle Pickle in downtown Roswell and Osteria Mattone.  Roxane works as Director of School Nutrition at Kennesaw Charter Science & Math Academy.  She says "I enjoy steering kids towards making healthier food choices, and introducing them to new foods that they can tell their parents about." She is "full blooded Armenian, food was always central to every occasion.  I don't think I ever bought a school lunch...kinda ironic." In her free time, she loves painting in Encaustics, and making jewelry from beach pebbles.  She also loves to read and take long walks on the beach.
