Over the course of her life Dorothy followed numerous things that piqued her interest, from working at Theater Arts Magazine and the AP, to opening her own consignment shop and working as a textile conservator, which allowed her to work on varied items including pieces from the Breakers and the Isabella Stewart Gardener Museum. Dorothy was also a founding member of the Black Ships Festival and a lifelong lover of literature.
