My name is Susan Sullivan. I am married with four children and live in the Pacific Northwest, where the grass is always green, the trees are glorious, and there is fresh air in abundance.
I am a designer at heart. My education and background are in architecture and interior design, but life made me a bookkeeper and manager of the little things.
My interests and skills are varied, but
I am most happy when I’m designing
I have found that just about everything that needs to be accomplished requires some level of design. I have designed buildings, brochures, logos*, jewelry, ornaments, quilts, personal planners, organization systems, budgets, investment portfolios, spreadsheets and investment monitors, and even a complete library classification system. I enjoy doing all of these things, and now I get to add designing a website to this list!
This endeavor grew out of a love for all things financial, a love for solving puzzles, a love of stewardship principles, and a love of writing. My desire has always been to help others learn and grow, and my motto in everything is “Aim for the higher standard”.
My hope is that my variety of interests and skills will somehow help me to accomplish these goals, and that I can bless your life in some way.
* I designed and created my puzzle-piece logo by hand nearly 20 years ago when I first became interested in money management and investing. If you look closely, you can see the background has yellowed, due to the aging of the paper it is on. I'm glad to finally have a good use for this logo!
MY MISSION STATEMENT
I commit to being positive, effective, and resourceful; to seek first God’s kingdom and righteousness, and treat others with honor; to learn more, pursue excellence, and encourage others to do the same.
