After earning her degree in Speech and Drama she went on to the University of California at Berkeley to pursue a graduate degree in Education.

After her husband's untimely death (1964) Tyanne went back to UC Berkeley and earned a Masters Degree in psychology. She worked for 30 years as a school psychologist for Fremont Unified School District along with having her own therapy practice. She made a difference as an advocate for children and touched many lives.
