Her lifelong love of science subsequently led her to work at Brookhaven National Laboratory in the U.S. Government's top secret experimental program in nuclear medicine. She returned to hospital work at Riverhead and St. Charles hospitals and later transition-ed to school nursing in the Longwood School District in order for her schedule to accommodate her three active children.
