Susan Zemser Israel is the Owner & Founder of 3 Lovebugs and Former Owner of Entrée Boutique. She was just recently selected as Empowered Woman of the Year for 2020 by the International Association of Top Professionals (IAOTP) for her outstanding leadership and commitment to the profession. Her exemplary role as a female business professional in a male dominated industry displays her fearlessness, capability and determination.
While inclusion with the International Association of Top Professionals is an honor in itself, only a few members in each discipline are selected for this distinction. These special honorees are distinguished based on their professional accomplishments, academic achievements, leadership abilities, longevity in the field, other affiliations and contributions to their communities. With innovation and perseverance, these women empower others to create change for future generations.
With over two decades of professional experience as an Entrepreneur & Stylist, Susan has certainly proven herself as an accomplished professional and expert in the field. As a dynamic, results-driven leader, Susan has demonstrated success not only as an Entrepreneur & Stylist but also as a Buyer. Her key responsibilities include day to day shop operations, inventory, selling, marketing, business development, management, advertising, branding and style selection. Entrée Boutique is a fashion boutique in Port Washington, New York carrying women & teenage clothing and accessories. Susan collaborates with her clients to help create their look they are trying to obtain for any occasion. From Red Carpet events, to Business Meetings to weekend outfits, Susan helps them accessorize with the hottest shoes, belts, jeans, blazer, vacation wear, professional outfits to timeless pieces, the Boutique has it all.
Susan is an inspirational powerhouse, who always arrives in style. Susan not only participates in the latest fashion events and brand launches, but also considers it her proudest moments to be able to share her appreciation for aesthetics with her family, friends, and newfound audience on social media. As of December 31st 2018, Susan transferred ownership of Entrée Boutique in light of bicoastal adventures she is pursuing in the style scene. With her youngest of three children in college this coming year, Susan felt it was time to release her role as local business owner, and fly into the next endeavor of her life becoming an influence in the fashion space.
Susan earned her Bachelor of Arts in Accounting from Baruch College and received her Master of Arts in Education, Psychology, and Early Childhood Education from New York University. The President of IAOTP, Stephanie Cirami stated that “Susan defines and embodies the word Empowered Woman. A successful entrepreneur, mother, philanthropist; she was everything we were looking for. We cannot wait to celebrate in all of her success at this year’s gala and know we will be seeing more amazing ventures come from her.”
Throughout her career Susan has received awards, accolades and has been recognized for her outstanding leadership and commitment to field. For 2020 she was selected as Empowered Women of the Year and will be honored at IAOTP’s Annual Awards gala at the Plaza Hotel in NYC later this year. For 2019 she was selected as Top Stylist of the Year by the International Association of Top Professionals (IAOTP) and was honored at IAOTP’s Gala at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. She was featured on the Famous Reuters building for her selection as Top Stylist of the Year and for her selection as a Professional of the Year by Strathmore’s Who’s Who Worldwide Publication.
Aside from her successful business Susan advises and assists in some charitable organizations such as Sunrise Day Camp and CMTA. She also participates in charitable events like Inspire Napa for research in Alzheimer’s. Previously Susan worked at Morgan Shareholder Services and the 92nd Street Y Nursery School of New York City.
Looking back, Susan attributes her success to her perseverance, mentors she has had along the way, and her passion for fashion. When not working, she enjoys traveling, sailing and spending time with her children Hannah, Elana and Jake. She says she has been blessed she loves doing what she is doing and feels this is just the beginning. For the future, she hopes to continue to make a difference in people’s lives anyway that she can.
