She left the world of development in 1984.
- Sheri Graner Grey, game developer and author of Gender Inclusive Game Design-Expanding the Market, the first book that breaks the preconception of male exclusivity in the use of videogames.

In the late 1990s, she founded the Women In Games International group where she held the position of executive director for many years. She has been internationally recognized for both her work as a game designer and her activism.
