With her career stretching back decades, Susan Headley has undergone her fair share of nicknames including both Susy Thunder and Susan Thunder. Going all the way back to 1970s, Headley was one of the first females to join one of the most renowned hacking groups in history, Cyberpunks. Throughout the 1970s and 80s, this organization continued to advance the field of hacking and created some of the most common tactics that are still used today. Over time, Headley created her own offshoot organization known as the Roscoe Gang, but she eventually gave up her hacking career to move to Las Vegas and become a professional poker player. In a twist that very few professional hackers undergo, Headley decided that she was ready for public office, even in a minor position, and was elected as the City Clerk in California City in 1994.
