As founder of Studio Brunstrum, Susan combines her marketing and business acumen with her love of art and creativity.

She spreads her enthusiasm for design as an active participant in the design community and as an on-air contributor. Susan also serves as the Programs Committee co-chair at the Woman’s Athletic Club of Chicago and is a contributing member to the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce, the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Home Trust International and Design Trust, Ltd.
