As founder and president of Epiphany, Susan’s career includes more than 20 years in the advertising industry. She has designed and strategized for brands including Coca-Cola, Marriott, Saab, L’Oreal, Mattel and the Girl Scouts. In 2012 she used her experience with big brands and complex sales chains to found Epiphany, a brand firm that focuses on helping manufacturers get specified more often.

A native of Buffalo, New York, and Pratt Institute graduate, Susan is also one of the founders of the design collaborative, Modern Richmond. Her work has been recognized in national award-winning competitions and collected by the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum. Outside of work, Susan lives in a silver cube house high up in the trees of a very traditional Richmond, Virginia neighborhood. She believes anything can be solved with a good yoga class. And brilliant design.
