She was involved in the Democratic party on the national and local level, the league of Women voters, president of the Board of Directors of the YWCA, worked for the Equal Rights Amendment in North Carolina, on the New Hanover County Planning Commission Board, and received many awards for her outstanding service and contributions to the empowerment of women and girls in the county.
