In 1920, she was the only woman in the first landscape architecture class to graduate from Michigan Agriculture College. As an ally of parks chief P.J. Hoffmaster, and later as founder and president of the Michigan Park Association, she raised public awareness and funding for more than 200,000 acres of Michigan's state and national parks.
