Susan has been practicing interior design for 20 years having had a magnificent time working on fabulous and exciting projects around the globe for many high profile clients residentially and commercially.
Miami University and The American College of London were Susan's launch pad to success. While earning her stripes out of college in NYC and obtaining additional credentials at Parson's and the esteemed Executive Training Program at Macy's Inc, she was busy working her way up the ladder in companies based in NYC and later Seattle and Washington, DC. Susan developed a solid understanding of the field and how to design and deliver projects that would 'wow' her audiences.
In 2003 Susan branched out on her own doing freelance design and prototype development consulting to some of the most highly regarded retailers & hoteliers in the world later opening her own design firm based in State College, PA. It has been a wild and wonderful ride continuing to consult and design projects around the globe and in her home community.
Susan has worked on residential projects covering the spectrum from the small project facelift to full scale renovations and new homes. She loves all things "style". Recently Susan was approached to work on 2 new television shows in development for HGTV.
Susan is very excited to share her magic with the Spaces and KokoBoxx clients as she leads a talented team designing for your style.
