To say that Suzanne is "ahead of the curve" would be a vast understatement. It would also be the kind of meaningless jargon that you never find in her work. In actuality, I believe Suzanne has found a portal into the future. She has uncanny knowledge about which technologies and strategies will end up being most effective. Suzanne has also brought back some kind of neural implant – which allows her to sort through ponderous amounts of content and quickly produce meaningful insights that guide creative teams to brillance.
Suzanne combines a vast knowledge of eCommerce, brand-awareness, web/mobile marketing, analytics, web and mobile content, web/mobile strategy, and a long background in financial, technical, and entertainment journalism, with a drive and endurance that is unparalleled in anyone I've worked with in my 23 year career.
