In her 30+ years in the field, there's probably no user experience design challenge that Susan hasn't seen. In both San Francisco and Sydney, Susan has practiced UX design, run consultancies, mentored global project teams, introduced UX design practices and cultures into organizations, and trained the next generation of practitioners. She’s launched and run consultancies in Sydney and, in years past, established and managed in-house UX teams within software, hardware, and services companies in Silicon Valley. Over time, she has become increasingly focused on using UX design for social good.
Susan teaches General Assembly’s UX Design Immersive course and consults through her boutique agency, OE Strategy.
