After a long and successful career in psychology, Dr. Hardy-Gibson retired at 51 after more than 25 years in the field.

Dr. Hardy-Gibson spent the last 5 years of her profession as a school psychologist for the Clark County school district where she worked as a high school psychologist for the Nevada school system and several years in the same capacity in Louisiana.

Besides her work as a school psychologist, Dr. Hardy-Gibson treated high-end clientele, including several well-known athletes. She also taught special education in the public school system, was an assistant professor at Louisiana State University, and worked for the University of Southern Mississippi as a sleep laboratory technician earlier in her career.

She also conducted over 20 national and two international presentations in collaboration with several institutions on various mental health topics.

Throughout her career, Dr. Hardy-Gibson found gratification in knowing she prioritized her students' welfare.
