She was active in medical politics, being President of the Doctors of BC, a board member of the Canadian Medical Association, Co-Chair of the GP Service Committee, as well as President of the Medical Women's International Association and the Federation of Medical Women of Canada. Motor vehicle accidents were a regular part of her office practice, with many of those consisting of whiplash injuries.
