Susie grew up riding the cold east coast hills and working for local ski shops before she migrated with her family to Portland, OR in 2002. After college, she spent 10 years as a biomedical scientist, then went back to school for design and illustration. Now she's back to her outdoor industry roots here at Mountain Shop as our Creative Director. Susie loves mountains, art and science in a major way. Her fave things include skiing, snowboarding, splitboarding and touring, backpacking and camping with her partner and dog.
