Susie Grace is a Traverse City-based User Experience Designer, skincare formulator, and the founder of the sustainable skincare brand Valor Skincare. She is a Michigan native that moved to Traverse City after life took her to Denver, Chicago, and Maui; she found a bit of every place she previously lived back in Northern Michigan. Those things are access to nature, a strong community, and surfing.
Leelanau County is one of the special places that drew Susie to call this area home. Vans Beach, Palmer Woods, and any spot that has the green of the woods or the blue of our beautiful Lake Michigan. When she’s not designing or experimenting with natural products, you can find her on the water, in the woods, or with her partner and dogs.
