As leader of the San Francisco office's Science & Technology studio, Suzanne leads large, complex and challenging projects with aplomb. She has experience in many project types, including universities, healthcare facilities and research laboratories such as Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Molecular Foundry and the University of California Berkeley Energy Biosciences Building. "As architects, we leave a legacy of our work for today and future generations,” she acknowledges. "We are fortunate to work with some of the best minds in science and education. Our efforts, when done well, can help translate to their success.” Along with the many clients in the San Francisco Bay area, Suzanne doesn't have to travel far to visit one of her favorite places: "A day in Napa or Sonoma counties, visiting wineries and enjoying the beauty of the region” is her idea of a great day, "including an amazing meal with my closest friends at one of the many fabulous restaurants."
