With more than four decades of experience to her credit, Ms. White has excelled as an American Indian bead worker at the Silver Quail in Dewey, since 1972.

In the past, Ms. White worked with Jane Phillips Medical Center in Bartlesville from 1986 to 2003. She began her career as an admitting clerk for the institution, where she would act as an advocate for patients as well as upfront personnel. Eventually desiring a less social position, Ms. White began working as the insurance filing clerk at the center and she remained with the organization for more than 20 years until her retirement in 2003.
Throughout her career, Ms. White experienced a number of moments which instilled her with a deep sense of pride. She was proud to have been honored as an elder at the Oklahoma Indian Summer Festival during 2001. Additionally, she was gratified to have been one of 50 individuals selected to display her art and wares at a function in Washington D.C. Other achievements to her credit include setting up local demonstrations for 700 students regarding Native American culture. To remain aware of changes in the field, she maintains her affiliation with the American Women in Arts, the Bartlesville Indian Women's Club, for which she served as the president for two years.
