After her 1961 graduation from Polytechnic High School in Fort Worth, Texas, Sue joined Southwestern Bell Telephone in downtown Fort Worth as a Customer Service Representative in the company’s Business Office. After several years she was promoted to management, spent several years at the company headquarters in St. Louis, Missouri, and was promoted to the company’s marketing department in Houston.

In the 1980’s she was sent to New Jersey to head up a new product introduction task force for AT&T. After a return to Dallas she had offices in both Dallas and Atlanta while completing her career with AT&T and Southwestern Bell. She retired with 28 years with the Bell Companies. She was one of very few women at that time to reach that level in business.
