Leading our Interiors Studio, Susan Drew is committed to partnering with clients and colleagues to create transformational spaces. In collaboration with her colleagues in architecture and engineering disciplines, she focuses on green building design and the use of sustainable materials, minimizing the impact of the firm’s projects on natural resources.

Susan has more than 33 years of design experience and serves as one of seven female principals at Clark Nexsen.

She is the recipient of a Women in Business Achievement Award from Inside Business, the Hampton Roads Business Journal. Susan believes mentorship extends beyond the workplace and into our communities, where she works with STEM students in Virginia Beach Public Schools and at her alma mater, Virginia Tech, as well as other Virginia universities.
