She has also served as a commercial property manager and as the Director of Greening UF, an initiative to reduce the environmental impact of the University of Florida that later became the university’s Office of Sustainability.

In 2010, she was awarded a Regional Director’s Conservation Award by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for her work conserving some of the last remaining habitat for a federally Endangered cactus.
