Susan’s architecture career started with Better Homes & Gardens. As a child, she poured through her Mom’s issues, especially enjoying the ‘before & after’ segments. Seeing one’s work built – the idea of creating what Susan terms as ‘built art’ – was enticing and she built a career on it. 

As part of WT’s residential high rise team, Susan draws on a wide variety of previous firm experience. Two of her favorite projects bookend the gambit of options – one a LEED Platinum Inn & Spa in Yountville, CA; the other the Permanent International Terminal at O’Hare airport. Both projects were marked by high levels of collaboration and acted as great learning experience. The skills learned through this work is daily applied to her work at Weber Thompson.
