Soon thereafter, she completed postgraduate coursework in public administration, from the University of South Florida. Moreover, Ms. Worlds graduated from the 13th Command Officer's Development Course at the Southern Police Institute in Louisville, Kentucky.
A certified teacher in the state of Georgia, Ms. Worlds began her career as a teacher for Terrell County High School in Dawson, Georgia, between 1972 and 1973. Two years later, she accepted a post with the St. Petersburg Police Department as an officer, further progressing to a training officer of the patrol bureau from 1978 to 1980.
