She was a graduate of Edinboro University and a sister of Alpha Sigma Alpha sorority. After graduation, she worked as a flight attendant, as a sub at the Quaker Valley School District and, for the past five years, at the Sewickley Public Library.

In lieu of flowers, she would have appreciated helping people, and in her life supported the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank and the Light of Life Mission.
