Born and raised in San Diego, Susan grew up with a love for the ocean and the outdoors. It was that love that brought Susan to Kauai many times over a period of twenty-five years, and then for good in 2007. Susan spent eighteen years in branding, marketing and business development, mostly in the Bay Area. Her career gave her the opportunity to work with a variety of companies-from Fortune 500 to technology start-ups--and hone her skills in building long-term relationships with her clients. In 2006, Susan set off for an adventure in Samoa to assist in the development, marketing and launch of a boutique resort, before returning to Kauai and earning her real estate license in 2007. Susan brings a strong knowledge of marketing and technology, and a lifelong appreciation for design and architecture to her work. Her love for Kauai and the diversity of the island provides her with the opportunity to find the perfect property to help make her clients' dreams a reality.
