She earned a BA in education from Immaculate Heart College, and began teaching at various SoCal schools including St. Matthew's in Long Beach, Blessed Sacrament in San Diego, and Francis Hopkinson and J.H.

She married Laurence McLaughlin in 1990 and together they loved to travel and spend time with their very large extended families and friends.
