Her professional writing clients included Eastman Kodak (more than 50 projects), International Business Machines (IBM), Citibank, Bausch & Lomb, Xerox, Marine Midland Bank, Bob Wright Productions, Rochester Products, Lapp Insulators, Philips Electronics, and more.

She also worked in public relations with a division of Saatchi & Saatchi Worldwide in Upstate New York.
