About Susan

Since I started working on websites for FOX, ABC and CNN I have mentored and taught 89 designers how to research, design, test and execute on 257 design projects for 51 clients. I’ve taught 1200 hours of intensive UX design bootcamps and spent 10+ years nurturing talent, developing processes and strategizing the user experience in 25 product teams.

I believes that mentoring, empathy and thoughtful design leadership drives innovation.

Work Experience

Principal Product Design Consultant


May 2013 - Today

I consult with and build product design teams at companies as high-profile as Sephora, PayPal and Oracle, and work with very early to mid-stage startups to help them put in place teams and processes for product designers. I'm a full stack designer and am available for short and long product design projects--I do everything from user research, usability testing, flows & wires to prototyping and UI design. The first heuristic evaluation is absolutely free!
