Susan Cunningham
Founder/CEOB.A., Curry College, Communications, cum laude
M.A., New York University, Education

As Founder and operating partner, Susan brings over 12 years of solidified sales, marketing, and business development experience to Uptown girl. A client herself, coupled with a strong passion for beauty and fashion luxuries, Susan identified a need for specialized beauty offerings for the quintessential cosmopolitan girl.

From early on Susan has had entrepreneurial aspirations, as young as 12 years old when she created and operated a performing arts academy from her New England home basement offering acting, vocal, modeling and dance classes to the neighborhood children. Susan went onto pursue more conventional roles, beginning with education, albeit undertaking a myriad of curricular activities and internships during the process. Among them; Political PR Consultant, Class Secretary, Cheerleading squad, Honors club, Legislative Assistant to a Massachusetts State Senator, and Fitness Marketing Coordinator for Reebok International.

A dedicated and tenacious leader in the many roles she assumes, Susan came to New York City in 1998 to pursue a Masters Degree at New York University. Upon graduating, Susan entered into the corporate world holding executive positions in sales and marketing within the financial publishing, creative design, and commercial real estate industries.

It was Susan’s love of proprietorship, people, beauty and luxury services that initiated the vision for Uptown girl. Making people feel great is what truly drives her, providing inspiration and personal reward for any of the work she takes on.
