In 1967 she earned a PhD in education for counseling and psychology, which she applied to a position in the Santa Clara Unified School District. She retired as lead psychologist from the district in 1984. Blackie served on the board of directors for the Palo Alto Historical Association, and volunteered for the Mid-Peninsula Access Corporation, the public access channel for her local cable television company.
