lead residential project designer
Suzette joined the JTI family after spending over five years in the furnishing and residential design realm. She collaborated with the interior design development of model homes for the Lennar Corporation and provided many families with interior design solutions resulting in their dream home. A romantic at heart, Suzette approaches design as the creation of a sanctuary for people to enjoy.
A Florida International University alumna, Suzette received her Master’s in Architecture and a Master’s in Interior Design. After college she had a clear vision of the approach she wanted to take in her professional life. Her passion for harmonious, cozy and functional spaces serves our clients well. Suzette loves using textures paired with neutral colors and often her spaces are accentuated with a signature pop of color.
Coming from a big, loving family, it's no surprise her drive in life is the harmony and well being of her close ones. Away from the office you can find Suzette spending time with her husband Mario and her toddler Giordanna. Always looking for the next family quest, Suzette enjoys traveling and finds inspiration in the experience of a culture’s essence.
