Susan realized there was much more going on than what she had originally perceived.
To be able to capture some of this on canvas quickly became a desire and goal.
Algorithmic and statistical problems in bioinformatics, particularly in: repeats and segmental duplication in eukaryotic genomes; fragment assembly in DNA sequencing; mass spectrometry data analysis for proteomics, glycomics and glycoproteomics; gene regulatory analysis.

She moved to Boulder, CO in 1994 where she received her training as a practitioner of The Rolf Method of Structural Integration and then opened her practice in Crested Butte in 1996.
