She majored rather ineffectually in English and has worked as a liquor store clerk, a cosmetics sales lady at a fancy department store, a bank teller, a strawberry picker (10¢ per pint), a fabric store clerk, a self-employed seamstress, a commercial loan processor, a line worker in a thermometer factory, a secretary, a stay-at-home mom, a librarian, a waitress, a school lunch lady, and a career counselor, where she led by example.
