Sue earned her EdD at Virginia Tech in Education (Horse Technology) and taught Equine Science at several colleges and universities before coming to the National Park Service. As Cape Lookout National Seashore’s Wildlife Biologist, she monitors and manages the herd of Banker horses on Shackleford Banks. She works closely with the non-profit Foundation for Shackleford Horses in a unique legislation- mandated partnership. PZP has been used at the park since 2000. Sue had early opportunities to dart deer on Fire Island with Rick Naugle and horses on Assateague with Allison Turner and Jay Kirkpatrick.
