In her capacity as a paralegal and mediator, Dr. Pryor has provided her professional legal assistance and conflict resolution expertise to several major law firms in the South Florida community, working full-time, beginning in the 1980s, for law firms focusing their practices on fields such as environmental law and family mediation. She also works actively in her community, engaging in complex environmental conflicts like the Everglades restoration, an issue of concern and great significance to the region, to the nation and to the world, through her membership in the National Audubon Society, state office, Audubon of Florida and its Everglades Conservation Network (ECN), and local chapter, Broward County Audubon Society (BCAS), since joining one of the largest and oldest environmental non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in 1999. After taking over as Editor five years ago, Dr. Pryor also collaborates with Audubon in their common goal "to get the word out" about the historic promise to save the Everglades through her monthly work editing, copywriting, and producing the BCAS newsletter The Warbler.

Dr. Pryor continues to sit on the BCAS Board of Directors and work actively as chapter leader, Editor of their monthly newsletter The Warbler, and Secretary and Officer, and currently represents BCAS as a delegate on the Everglades Coalition and on the environmental organization's conservation, Everglades, "Everglades Bird Fest," "Give Thanks for the Environment Day," and programs committees. She is also a professional member of the National Writers Association (NWA) and the Freelance Writing Organization - Int'l (FWO), and a member of Writers Net.

While residing in Pembroke Pines, Florida with her beloved husband Ed and menagerie of pets which include sweet Pixie-bob babies, PK Pixies Keota and Kiowa, and cockatiel and parakeet, Wally and Petey, Dr. Pryor continues keeping busy working on her writing to shed further light on significant topics of concern like her groundbreaking new book, also available to order online in ShopInStore section on the author's Web site, chronicling The Role of an Environmental NGO in the Landmark Florida Everglades Restoration.
