Taking the train to Kansas City, she attended Kansas City Secretarial School and started her first secretarial job at Commodity Credit Corporation, later called the War Assets Administration.

When she and Ivan moved to Dallas, she worked for three different companies as a secretary. In Wichita Falls she worked for a couple of law firms and for the railroad for a short time. When she and Ivan left Texas and moved to Mobile, Alabama, she worked for a law firm. In Los Angeles, she worked as secretary to the Sales Manager for General Mills.

While Helen and Ivan were in Tampa, most of the time she did not work outside the home. She did work for a short period as a secretary for an electrical company.

In Jacksonville, Florida, she first worked as a secretary for a cruise line company, and then later for short periods she worked with Kelly Girls, a temporary agency company. She also worked for Kelly Girls in Tallahassee.

When she and Ivan moved to San Diego, California, she first worked with Triple A and then later, for a few years, she worked for Kelly Girls and Manpower Temporary Agency. Most of the time in San Diego, Helen has not worked outside the home
