She received her Bachelor's degree in education from Ohio University and taught in various school districts in Scioto County including Northwest, Valley and Clay before moving to Portsmouth, High School. She taught Government at Portsmouth High School for 27 Years, retiring in 1991. She impacted many students' lives during her years teaching-serving as Senior Class Advisor and tutoring after school.
Upon moving to Fairfax, Virginia in 2001, she served as a substitute teacher in Fairfax County Public Schools from 2002 to 2008 and volunteered as a Capitol Hill Guide in Washington D. C. until 2009. She always considered Portsmouth home and returned several times a year to visit family and friends.

All that who knew Doris will confirm all the stories about her are likely true.
