She attended Saint Michael’s Academy in Chatham as well Teacher’s College in Fredericton with her life-time friend Rose Ramsay.

She taught in South Bathurst, Bass River, Dalhousie, Moncton and finally Chatham for over 25 years while earning Degrees in Arts and Education from the University of Moncton. Kay was also a member of the Miramichi Area Retired Teachers Association (MARTA).
