A few years after, the family moved to Isleta Pueblo, New Mexico, while her father was involved building the Santa Fe Railroad to Albuquerque.

Upon graduation, she attended the New York Teachers College of Columbia University in Manhattan, New York, graduating in 1893. After teaching in New Jersey for two years, she was offered the job of principal of the Primary Department of the Gilbertsville Academy. In 1896 she married local pharmacist, Lewis M. Donaldson.

Among one of those, "Moons of Long Ago." Her poetry was published in many regional newspapers and magazines.
