About our Founder + CEO Susie Busch Transou

Hearth and Soul is the vision of business woman, mom, volunteer and friend, Susie Busch Transou. Susie’s love of hospitality blended with the desire to enrich the lives of others has come together to make Hearth and Soul a dream come true.


Growing up in St. Louis, Susie Busch Transou has always taken the Anheuser-Busch philosophy “Making Friends Is Our Business” seriously - both in her personal and professional life. While attending Duke she met Tripp Transou, the man with whom she would move to Tallahassee, raise three children, and through Tri-Eagle Sales (a Florida specialty beverage distribution company) serve north Florida’s beverage needs.


After years of business and hospitality experience, Susie’s entrepreneurial spirit was stoked when she was inspired at a milestone birthday gathering of old and new friends to reflect on unmet needs in her world and what feeds her soul. The answer led Susie to create a unique concept in retail that is reminiscent of the home; a haven within this fast-paced world where friends can connect and an inviting place to acquire carefully curated items from near and far.
