After Sally graduated from the Marquette University College of Journalism in 1963, she moved to Skokie IL where she worked for a suburban weekly newspaper. After the Daubel's marriage on Feb. 8, 1964, she moved to Dallas TX where her husband was working for the Dallas Morning News.

While there, she was employed as a copywriter for the Sanger Harris department store and in continuity with radio station KBOX.
