I have been employed full-time, part-time, contract, freelance, and salaried for over 20 years—teaching and working in a marketing environment. I began my career as a designer and production artist specializing in typography/layout and design apps. I added digital skills teaching web design I & II and continued to teach while working part time.

I just want to say how amazingly helpful Susan has been with the new i-CAT website. With months of back and forth of not really getting anywhere I was able to talk it over with Susan and she accomplished what I was looking to have done in a day. All the work she has dedicated to the site so far has helped tremendously to both function and look its best!
Julie Fragoso | Digital Marketing Manager, KaVo Kerr
Susan is a rockstar front-end developer that anyone would want on their team. She joined ours in the middle of a website project and jumped right in — embracing the dental business, learning about the products, building out web pages and offering a ton of value with her UX and typography skills. Within a year her responsibilities grew a ton. In our next website relaunch project, to retrofit one site into an existing site infastructure, she helped define the content migration production process, standardize product templates and content, implemented SEO file naming, enforced brand standards and improved functionality in the live site and CMS, to name a few things. I would work with her again anyday.
Larry Dannewitz | President, Sandwich Fair Association
I developed a high regard for Susan based on the outstanding work she did in a short period of time. She was able to produce a very high volume of work while maintaining very high standards of quality. Her strong human relations skills enabled her to interface effectively with many different personalities within our organization. She was able to take charge and get things done.
