Inez graduated in 1890 from Rhode Island Normal School, and graduated in 1900 with a PhD Biology from Brown University

In 1901, she was one of the first Zoology Department graduate students at Smith College, where she joined the faculty in 1902 as an instructor in that department.
In 1906, Inez co-taught a class on the "Anatomy & Physiology of Man" with Harris Wilder; they married on 26 July 1906
She was granted a full professorship in 1914.

In 1904, Inez published the first serious study of non-human epidermal ridges in "The Ventral Surface of the Mammalian Chiridium with special reference to the conditions found in man". The conclusions of identity in fingerprint analysis are built upon this work.

The Blue Ridge Two-Line Salamander, Eurycea wilderae, was named after Inez in 1920.
