Susan Semmelmann is an award-winning philanthropist, modern-day entrepreneur, innovative designer, doting wife, and mother of three wonderful children. What do you call someone who dons multiple hats and excels in all roles with a bright smile and a deep-rooted desire to give back to the community? An inspirational leader indeed! The Owner of Susan Semmelmann Interiors is a testament to this persona.
Susan has been involved in the construction and design world for the last 25 years and believes ‘The spirit of living is in the giving’. Along with her husband, Susan owned a construction company for many years. Her foray into solo entrepreneurship resulted from her desire to create beauty for others and give back to her community. Susan is gifted with a creative eye, a knack for attention to detail, bold design vision, and a passion for giving. It’s the perfect recipe for her wildly successful, heart-centered, people-first design business.
Taking Lessons from Hardships
Just over ten years ago, Susan’s husband developed a very rare and life-threatening form of bone cancer. “During that time, every day I woke up, and he was still here was a gift,” says Susan. How difficult it must have been for her to see him fight for life while all she could do was wait and pray. Thankfully, he beat the odds and is still by Susan’s side, healthy and well.
Looking back at that challenging phase of her life, Susan says, “It developed my grit and determination and filled my heart with pure gratitude for the supportive community that rallied around us, and strengthened my purpose to give back.” This is what planted the seeds and laid the foundation for everything Susan Semmelmann Interiors stands for today.

A Day in the Life of a Multitalented Leader
“My days consist of early mornings taking care of the details of running my business, and the rest of the day is spent out in the field with my team and our clients,” happily adds Susan. You can often spot her in conversation with her team or discuss ideas or work updates with her clients on project sites.
Irrespective of her title, Susan doesn’t own a fancy office or a desk at work. There is also never a dull moment or monotonous schedule at work that gets her stressed or tired. Her passion for bringing her client’s dreams and visions to life motivates and inspires her every day. Susan’s day ends by spending quality time with her family and friends.
A Message for Aspiring Entrepreneurs
Initially, when Susan started her business, she experienced a steep learning curve related to the ins and outs of running a business. She took a giant leap of faith and dove into the challenging waters of entrepreneurship. Although she and her husband have owned business throughout their marriage, Susan’s focus and passion for her namesake firm have been the driving force behind her willingness to put in the hard work and learn as she goes – even if the road gets bumpy sometimes. Therefore, Susan wants others to realize their own calling, discover their dreams, and work hard towards achieving them through her journey.
On a Life’s Mission to Give Back
“In my mind, the more successful the company is, the more we can give back – it’s that simple,” says Susan. As the proud Owner of Susan Semmelmann Interiors, Susan wants her company to experience healthy growth while maintaining the highest integrity, remaining client-focused, and keeping a heart for philanthropy at its center. She believes that if the focus stays on maintaining a strong foundation, the rest will take care of itself.
One of her personal goals as a leader is to set an example for others, go the extra mile for every project, and never rest on her laurels. “Helping people brings fresh air to my lungs. It’s the life force and the joy in my world,” asserts Susan. She is an active part of numerous charitable organizations, such as A Wish with Wings, Raquel’s Wings for Life, etc. and wishes to contribute more in the future. “Life isn’t about what you get, it’s about what you give, and I want to give what I have to you,” earnestly concludes Susan.
