She graduated from Union Memorial Hospital School of Nursing in Baltimore, Maryland in 1949 and has been active in Nursing Services and Nursing Education, until she recently retired.

At Memorial, the idea for REINFORCEMENT EDUCATION was born and where ever she worked, high school, college and graduate students benefited from this program that builds self-esteem and helps students to learn more easily, using the Focused Method of studying, learn new strategies for test-taking so that they be-come test-taking experts, overcoming test-taking anxiety. This program was her mission in life and in service to the over a thousand people from 14 States whose lives were changed as they learned to become successful and reach their goals.
