After graduating from the University of Wisconsin in Madison, she went on to get a Pharmacy degree in Chicago.

She then went from retail pharmacy to pharmaceutical research managing several studies early in HIV-AIDS drug research and then cardiac treatments. Retiring from Bristol Myers Squibb, she fulfilled her dreams to travel the world. She moved to Maryland in 2018 and is also survived by five grandchildren (Matthew and Benjamin Green and Samantha, Rebecca and Kira Adler) and 4 great-grandchildren (Charlotte, Jonathan, Juliette and Lily Green).
