After completing her doctorate, and working as an academic in undergraduate and postgraduate levels at QUT, Suzanne worked for one day per week conducting research in a very challenging school community in Brisbane. This school had a large special education unit and a multicultural school community. Following this work, Suzanne established and led the Staff College, Inclusive Education in Education Queensland (2002?04) while on secondment from QUT. In her role as Principal of the Staff College, she directed professional learning of staff in Education Queensland to support the development of a more inclusive approach to culture, policy and practice.
