She was a 1953 graduate of Skidmore College of Nursing and was a public health nurse for many years. She worked for the VNA of Brooklyn, as well as Mercy Hospital in Baltimore, before moving back to NJ where she continued her career in public health and teaching obstetrics at Muhlenburg Hospital. In 1991 Miki and her husband Bob moved to New Bern, North Carolina which is where she considered her home. She enjoyed travelling, volunteering with Hospice and knitting caps for premature babies.
