Directly after school, she moved to Orlando, FL to teach art at an elementary school while her husband worked on his Recording Arts degree. In 2006, they moved to Richmond, VA where she continued to teach art to elementary students while painting in her free time. In the summer of 2007, her husband was hired at Elon University, and they moved for a third time. She currently lives in North Carolina and teaches at Graham High School while painting in her free time.
 
Oil painting is Windy's medium of choice, and she has been commissioned by clients throughout the country for her unique portraits.

To date, she has sold work in five countries as well as fifteen of the United States.
