In 1990 she returned to ASU and for 17 years worked in the following departments:  Botany, Economic Development, University Relations, and Office of Development where she worked on the 1995 Capital Campaign.  A new challenge was offered from the Department of Geography where she worked as the Business Manager, until she retired in 2007.

She served on the ASURA board 2008-2011, was Treasurer for 2 of those years, chaired the Finance Committee one year, served two years on the Retirees Day Committee and most recently served on the History Book Committee.  Some of her current volunteer activities include Habitat for Humanity, college fund raiser, neighborhood homeowners’ association board, and for the last 22 years, as a Gammage volunteer usher.
