Suzanne is an architect with over 15 years in the field of architecture.
Her experience includes residential & retail projects, code consulting, project management & graphic design.
Suzanne is a native Californian. She attended California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo where she received her Bachelor of Architecture. While in school, she interned at the City of San Francisco Planning Department and SMP. During her final year, she participated in the Danish International Studies program in Copenhagen, Denmark. She focused her studies on residential architecture and co-housing. And yes, Joe & Suzanne both went to Cal Poly, but did not cross paths while there.
After graduating, she spent time traveling through Europe. Upon returning to the United States, she started working for Kutzmann & Associates inc.
, an independent plan check company. This enabled her to obtain a firm understanding of federal, state & local code requirements. She was also able to gather insight to the various projects being built through out the Bay Area.
Suzanne then went to work for McCall Design Group
, an architectural company with a focus on retail. As a project manager she was in charge of multiple projects and architectural interns. She was also heavily involved with the company's participation in the LEAP sand castle classic. And yes again, Joe & Suzanne both worked at McCall Design Group. In fact, they sat across from each other :)
For a short while Suzanne worked with Holly Hulburd Design Inc.
, an architectural and interior design company. Project consisted of high end residential remodels and additions.
After a short break & some more traveling, Suzanne and Joe formed SUJO design inc. An architectural company providing a wide range of services to residential clients.
When not working, Suzanne spends most of her time with her family and friends, enjoying the simple things in life.... cooking, dining, lounging, gardening, observing, bouncing, floating, wandering, creating and taking pictures of everything.
