Nathan Kirk Prusi – Fire Commission

My name is Nathan Prusi, I am relatively new to town having moved here in December of 2019 but have found what I consider to be my home and want to contribute positively to my new community.

A little bit about my history. I have grown up in CT for most of my life, and have lived in both rural and urban communities in CT. I am currently an Ethics and Compliance Manager for Starbucks Coffee Company and have worked in Asset Protection and Loss Prevention for Starbucks, Abercrombie & Fitch, and Lord and Taylor.  In these positions I have had to problem solve, manage budgets, organize and lead teams, and achieve measurable results.

I am a graduate Magna Cum Laude from Sacred Heart University with a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice. Shortly after graduation I joined the United States Marine Corps Reserve as an Infantry Assaultman. Within 2 years I was assigned as a Section Leader for the Assault Section, Weapons Platoon, Charlie Company 1/25. I served a rewarding six years with the Marines. I was activated in 2003 in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. During my service was recognized in School of Infantry as the Honor Graduate from for my section, and during our deployment I was honored with a Letter of Commendation for leadership during our activation.

I am married to a wonderful woman Andrea Prusi and have 4 amazing children: Nathan, Sawyer, Dean and Leila. Since coming to our new home, I have become Cubmaster for Pack 266 and Assistant Scoutmaster in Troop 66. I am also currently serving on the Social Services Commission.  I have been a long-standing supporter of the Veteran community and was the co-founder of the New York Metro Chapter of the Starbucks Armed Forces Network. I also currently am the National Program Director for Starbucks Armed Forces Network.

I am excited to help continue to serve Suffield and its people. I humbly ask for the opportunity to do so as a member of the Fire Commission.
