She worked in the  food service industry on Martha's Vineyard, Cape Cod, and in Sarasota, and progressed into restaurant management for more than a decade.  She has always been energetic and hard working. 

After Sue became aware of the many benefits of permanent makeup, she was very enthused and proceeded to study, train and become Certified in the SofTap

enjoy the look and the convenience of permanent makeup. 

Sue is married to Tim Blackledge and the mother of one fantastic 11-year-old son, Max.  (No, he didn't write this.)
