By 1840 she worked as a "teacher of Pestan junior virgins in Ludoviceum". After that, she began working in Zemun in the primary "Girl's School", shortly after its establishment. For her work at school, she was rewarded on several occasions.

She also engaged in poetry. She was also a contributor to the "Srbski narodni list" (eng."Serbian National List"), "Letopis Matice srpske" (eng."Matica srpska Journal"), and "Dodatak novina srbskih" (eng."The Addition to Serbian Newspapers") in which she published her poems.

The poems were published in "Matica srpska Journal" and were printed in "The Anthology of Serbian Patriotic Poetry" (serb. "Antologija srpskog rodoljubivog pesništva") in Belgrade in 1967.
