From an early age, Susan was intrigued with elements of design and color which directed her to select Interior Design as her ultimate profession. Susan’s innate ability to see the “whole picture”, while creating environments that evoke drama and serenity has helped to make her successful.
Susan established Creative Environments in 1984. Prior to launching her own design firm, Susan worked for Aiello and Associates doing hospitality design around the country. Her education includes Tufts University in Massachusetts, with a degree in Occupational Therapy, and a degree in Interior Design from IDI, in Colorado. Utilizing her knowledge of the medical field and her background in Occupational Therapy, Susan has designed and space planned numerous medical and dental facilities.
Susan grew up in Colorado, but her love of travel and exploration has helped her incorporate design elements from near and far. Susan lives with her husband and has two daughters.
