Born in Helsinki, Finland. Susie is a 2015 graduate from Kirkwood Community College, with a AAS Degree in Interior Design. She comes from a residential design background where she had spent 4 years designing client homes at Dwell Home Furnishings and has had 5+ years in restaurant and retail management positions prior to her career change. What she loves about design is that there is a fulfilling balance in the Design industry where her creative and innovative passion also meets the analytical and critical thinking background aspects. Her passion is working with clients to really gain a good understanding of their design needs and styles, and then executing the perfect spaces to create something unique to their business or home. In her free time, Susie enjoys creating art, hosting friends and family events, doing home improvements with her husband, and spending time in the outdoors.
