After raising her family, she attended Mobile Infirmary and earned her Registered Nursing degree with certification in cardiac care and chemotherapy. Her career included employment at the Mobile Infirmary Hospital in the cardiac unit. She later worked at the nursing home and in home care. Loving her job, she also volunteered at a local bible camp during summer visits in Maine.
