She also is Co-Owner of Spacez, a new collection of event venues in washington, DC learn more at www.spacezdc.com.  Suzi brings to Long View a unique perspective gained through years of high-profile activity in New York City. After an education in art history, Suzi spent over three years leading a world-renowned Italian art glass company to establish its presence in US markets. Her efforts brought the company to limelight through a PR and events campaign that included collaborations with Fashion Rocks NYC and the Lincoln Center Lifetime Achievement in Film awards. With that success freshly on her heels, Suzi's next endeavor brought a new gallery to the famed SOHO art district in NYC, where her creativity and leadership took the upstart from pre-construction planning to flourishing success.

Never slowing down, Suzi relocated to DC in 2007, and began helping individual and corporate clients with unique event ideas and planning. Through these pursuits, it quickly became clear that the DC area was missing something so many of her clients and others desired - a modern venue for exciting, inspired events. Suzi's vision now joined with that of the team to proudly bring DC the new Long View Gallery.
