Most of her career following graduation was spent as an academic librarian, including the last 17 years at UPEI.??Throughout her career she was actively involved in scholarly endeavours and contributions to her profession. In addition, she served the university and broader community in various ways. Of note is the fact that she was the first female and the first librarian to serve as president of the UPEI Faculty Association.
