Sue has a B.A. in Management Information Systems and Accounting from the University of Wyoming. The first ten years of her career were spent with a natural gas pipeline company. She began in accounting and was quickly included on pipeline project teams, which led to her assignment to an implementation team for Oracle Financial software.
Later, she joined the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) where she spent two years helping to build their new Highway Project Delivery team. Sue was a valued member of the team working as the Primavera Systems Administrator where she was responsible for administering Oracle Primavera software for over 200 users and more than 300 projects. While at WYDOT, she also gained valuable experience managing projects; she coordinated quarterly meetings with each of the five districts and managed the design portion of all WYDOT Roadway Projects. Drawing on her accounting background, Sue designed reports in SAP Business/Web Intelligence software that included both written queries and formatted reports. Sue also created and taught in-house training courses on Primavera P6 and SAP Business/Web Intelligence to WYDOT.
