A regular at the Sydney Comedy Store and Giant Dwarf Theatre, Susie has also performed at Splendour in the Grass, Secret Garden Festival and Homebake. She has performed internationally as a guest at Improvaganza in Edmonton, Dad's Garage in Atlanta and The Del Close Marathon in New York. Susie studied at the iO Theatre in Chicago and ate quite a lot of the burgers. In 2014, she played the lead role in the Hayloft Project's award-winning play The Boat People.

Following a sold-out run at the Sydney Fringe Festival in 2014, Susie made her solo debut at the Melbourne and Sydney Comedy Festivals in her sketch comedy show Sketchual Chocolate. She returned to the comedy festival circuit in 2015 with Owl Eyes On You and in 2016, Susie made her Edinburgh Fringe and London debut in Check Youssef Before You Wreck Youssef. Susie continued to test the limit of her anxiety with Behave Youssef the following year.

In 2018 Susie debuted with the Sydney Theatre Company at the Sydney Opera House in an all-female version of An Accidental Death Of An Anarchist and wrote and performed in The Smallest Hour with that nice British raconteur, Phil Spencer, in a sold-out debut season with the Griffin Theatre Company. In 2020, Susie starred in the Australian premiere of Home, I'm Darling with the Melbourne Theatre Company and more recently made her STCSA debut in The Appleton Ladies' Potato Race.

2021 saw Susie showcase her craftier side co-hosting Making It Australia alongside Harley Breen, before heading to Tasmania in 2022 to shoot the highly anticipated Deadloch for the Kates (McCartney & McLennan) and Guesswork TV.

On stage, Susie most recently played Trinculo in the STC's acclaimed production of The Tempest. She is a regular co-host and correspondent on Network TEN's The Project and The Sunday Project and has co-hosted the Australian Of The Year ceremony for ABC for the last three years.
