She entered the field of social work after being a registered professional nurse for 25 years in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Oishei Children’s Hospital of Buffalo.

Today, along with her dog Isabella, she serves a variety of individuals and families with loss related issues. Day previously worked at the Lee Gross Anthone Child Advocacy Center in Buffalo as a therapist with sexually abused children and severely physically abused children. She also works as part-time faculty at the UB School of Social Work as well as a group facilitator with Stone’s Buddies at Oishei Children’s Hospital.
