As an encapsulation of her teaching career, her favourite quote is by Jack Welch, which states, “before you become a leader, success is all about growing yourself. After you become a leader, success is about growing others.”

As part of her duties, she worked in the intensive care unit (ICU), out-patient department (OPD), surgical ward and oncology department.
She continued studying for her Post Basic Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BScN) at the Christian Medical College of Nursing in Ludhiana, between 1996 to 1999.
Thereafter she worked as a nursing tutor at Guru Nanak College of Nursing in Dhahan-Kaleran, while also serving as the Deputy Nursing Superintendent at Guru Nanak Mission Hospital on the same campus, between 2000 to 2003.
Between 2003 and 2009, she took on the role of Vice Principal at Sandhu Institute of Nursing in Nawanshahr.
From 2009 to 2011 she completed her Master of Science in Nursing (MScN) at Gwalior Nursing College (GNC) in Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh.
She returned to work at Sandhu Institute of Nursing from 2011 to 2014. From 2015 to 2017, she resumed her role at Guru Nanak College of Nursing and Guru Nanak Mission Hospital in Dhahan-Kaleran.
