So Suzy Says was born out of my love for sharing all of my personal resources and innate sense of style with those I care about. I’ve been told that I can ‘sell ice to Eskimos’ and connect people together on mutually beneficial levels.
I grew up on New York’s Locust Valley then traveled the world via Semester at Sea before graduating from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. My first job was in New York Hospital’s public relations department where I handled VIP donors and helped plan fundraisers to benefit the hospital. While on the East Coast, I also worked in the fashion industry and for the Fox television show “A Current Affair”. Following my move to Los Angeles, I became a wardrobe stylist working with celebrities including Michelle Pfeiffer and Jack Nicholson.
Then, came motherhood which was my primary focus for a decade plus. After my second child was born, I was inspired to start the first of my successful ventures, my Just Had a Baby line of t-shirts and onesies. The line was sold in 60 plus cities around the USA and featured in People Magazine. I also serve on the Lilly Pulitzer Advisory Board.
Now that my children are teenagers I’m undertaking a second entrepreneurial venture … So Suzy Says which will be a blog and weekly email of my curated finds where I’ll share my tips, resources and wisdom on how to find the best of everything.
I’m fortunate to be able to combine my finds on both the East and West coasts – and all of those gems in between – since I live bi-coastally.
