Capital Roots 2020 Executive Committee
Capital Roots Vice-President

Anoush Koroghlian Scott
Good nutrition and healthy living have always been a major part of my life. As a graduate student I worked to assure access to nutritious foods and education through accurate food labeling. As a law student I advocated for regulation of health claims on food packaging. And as parents, my husband and I have shared with our three daughters our love of gardening, cooking with fresh ingredients, and overall healthy living. At home, we compost all of our organic waste and in addition to our modest vegetable garden, we keep bees (who make great honey!), grow raspberries and blackberries, our own Christmas trees, and are now taking on some on fruit trees. When I was introduced to Capital Roots I was immediately drawn to its mission and vision. Having served on the Volunteer and Program committees, I grew to truly appreciate the tremendous positive impact it has and continues to have on such a broad spectrum of the community. I am so proud and honored to be part of Capital Roots!
Capital Roots Secretary
Director of Strategic Communications (Albany County)
As a volunteer on the Capital Roots communications committee for more than a decade, I have seen firsthand not only how much the organization has grown over time, but also the amazing impact it has every day on so many communities throughout the Capital Region. The Capital Roots mission to ensure that everyone has access to fresh food and green space is especially meaningful for me, and I look forward to using my background in strategic communications, public relations and community engagement to support such a worthwhile cause.

I am passionate about gardening, food, cooking and travel. It’s rare that you can be actively involved with an organization and see first-hand the effect it has on the community. I initially got involved with Capital Roots because a friend of mine chaired the committee for “An Autumn Evening in the Garden” Capital Roots’ gala event and asked me to be on the committee. After that I was hooked.
