She began her career as a Student Teacher at Saint William the Abbot School in Seaford in 1979 and she remained there teaching fourth and second grades until 1987 when she had her first child.

Mrs. Doherty attended Saint Bernard's School in Levittown, The Academy of Saint Joseph in Brentwood, Saint Joseph's College in Patchogue and Fordham University. Obviously, Catholic Education plays a big part in her life!
Mrs. Doherty is married with a daughter and a son. Both of her children were educated in Catholic Elementary School, Catholic High School and Catholic Colleges.
