Director of Operations
Bringing an international flair to the Clay Pot Creative offices, Susan hails from South Africa where she got her start in accounting at an early age. Growing up on the family's flower farm, Susan started managing the books for her father on the farm's shipments to Holland.
Wanting to explore the rest of the world, Susan found herself working in New Jersey for nearly a decade, honing her accounting and people skills before a visit out to Colorado in April of 2015. Instantly connecting with the Rocky Mountains, so similar to those she grew up with in South Africa, Susan found her way to Clay Pot Creative where she does her best to keep the team in line. Usually a losing effort.
What you might catch me doing in my off time:
When not experimenting with a new recipe in the kitchen, I love being outdoors. Hiking, yoga, horseback riding. And when I do rest, you'll find me snuggling with my cat and dog, Panda and Peanut, while curled up with a good book.
Music that gets me into a creative groove:
Everything from Metallica to Britney Spears. Def Leppard, Whitesnake, Fleetwood Mac, Beethoven, and Tchaikovsky. All of it gets me going.
Favorite part of working for Clay Pot Creative:
The espresso machine and beer keg are a good start but the team environment is wonderful. Working out on the east coast for so long, I appreciate the warm attitude that everyone has here.
