A graduate of Hamden High School and the Greenwich Hospital School of Nursing, she enjoyed a varied career in the nursing profession. Early on she served as a nurse at the Yale Psychiatric Clinic, and also served two years in a veteran's hospital in Delaware before moving to Connecticut to serve as a visiting nurse in North Haven. After her marriage to the late Richard L. Hudson, she moved to New York and Pennsylvania before settling in New Hampshire where she once again took up nursing. For many years she worked at the New England College student infirmary before returning to visiting nursing, serving both Kearsarge Regional Visiting Nurse Association and the Concord Visiting Nurse Association. She enjoyed visiting nursing because of the opportunity to attend to patients in their own homes, and to provide them with health education. After returning to Connecticut in retirement, she became an active member of the global missions committee at Faith United Methodist Church in North Haven.
