Susie was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland and Yakota, Japan. She grew up shredding the cold east coast hills and working for local ski shops before she migrated to Portland, OR in 2002. Susie earned a degree in biology from UO and was a biomedical scientist for 10 years before going back to school for graphic design. 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.
