Adia Saurey,

Service Navigator

As a service navigator, I work with clients to ensure the best food bank experience possible, and help to connect them to other potentially helpful HRDC and community resources. I also help pack food boxes and plan deliveries. I love working with people, and really appreciate the chance to serve my community!

Hobbies: I love to ski, hike, climb, camp, and do all the outdoor things. I’m also a big time book lover and plant enthusiast.

Work experience: While in school, I volunteered and later worked with the VOICE Center at MSU, and also interned with Backcountry Squatters, an MSU club turned non-profit dedicated to promoting female empowerment in the outdoor community. Upon graduation, I spent a year working at a small food production company before joining the amazing food bank team.

Education: B.A. in Environmental Studies and minors in writing and sustainability from MSU.

Jess Heagler,

Volunteer Coordinator

My main role is to oversee the amazing volunteers that make the Food Bank the great success that it is!

I was raised in Bozeman and after living in Oregon for the past 14 years, I am thrilled to be back in my hometown. I love this land and its people-it is a great honor to be able to serve our community.

In my free time I can be found spending as much time in nature as possible-hiking, camping, rockhounding, hanging out on the river, snowshoeing, hot springing and exploring dirt roads I’ve never been down before. I also enjoy lapidary, travel, gardening, live music, various arts & crafts, cooking and spoiling my cat Cleo.

Katharine Sutphen,

Volunteer Coordinator

After working as the Special Projects Officer at HRDC for two years, I am delighted to be joining Gallatin Valley Food Bank as the Volunteer Coordinator. My primary responsibilities include managing and building relationships with our wonderful Food Bank volunteers – who make everything happen!

Hobbies: I grew up in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia but have called Montana home for 3 years. I love trail running, skiing, backpacking, and foraging. I have a wonderful adventure buddy, Murph.

Favorite Food: Burritos – breakfast, lunch, and dinner!

Education: B.S. in Sociology from James Madison University

Becki Cook,

Service Navigator & Customer Care Coordinator
As the Service Navigator for the Gallatin Valley Food Bank I am responsible for creating quality customer care for our clients and providing them with community resources that can help them thrive.  This foundational service is based in kindness, compassion and non judgement.
I graduated from Montana State University with a B.S. in Physical Education and Recreation Management and am a Certified Montessori Teacher and Western Herbalist.  I have dedicated the past 30 years as a community member helping people and organizations grow in Bozeman Montana.
In my free time, I find great joy being in nature. Whether it is experiencing the beauty of wildflowers, exploring the mountains or finding peace by a lake, I simply love the natural world.
I am grateful for an opportunity to use my superpower at the GVFB, “Shining the Light of Hope and Possibility for Humanity”

Nick Savage,

Warehouse Coordinator

I am originally from a Boston suburb and moved to Montana in 2006. I am an avid hiker and love nothing more than a good book and a strong cup of coffee.  I used to have hobbies but now I have an eleven year old so I essentially have his hobbies.  Or rather he has hobbies and I am his chauffeur.  My wife, Sara Savage, also works for HRDC, with the Head Start Program.

As warehouse coordinator I am tasked with attempting to maintain an orderly environment which will allow the store to run more efficiently.  I also assist with Food Rescue and generally try to be available to help wherever needed around the store.

Chloe Loeffelholz,

Outreach Coordinator

My primary responsibility includes overseeing all the food bank’s outreach. I also serve as the Huffing For Stuffing co-chair. You can find me assisting with daily warehouse tasks, asking to take pictures of GVFB in action, and working with our team of dedicated volunteers!

Hobbies: Like any good Montanan I love skiing in the winter and camping and hiking in the summer. I play the violin as well as a decent game of cribbage. All times of the year I can be found with a good book in hand!

Work-life: Spent summers at the Living History Farm at the Museum of the Rockies and the school year working to promote healthy relationships between renters and homeowners.

Education: B.A in Communication Studies from the University of Montana
