She was on the teaching staff of Strathcona School, Aberdeen School, and William Whyte School, then was appointed Principal of Wolseley School in 1921. She retired from the position in June 1945. She was a member of the IODE (serving as Secretary of the Prince Rupert Lodge) and Westminster United Church, and an honorary life member of the Winnipeg Teachers’ Association.
