She has presented at national, regional and state levels covering cultural diversity and parental involvement. She is committed to mentoring women in universities to increase retention.

After 38 years in the LPS system, she retired in January of 2013. Dr. Kaigler- Love made learning fun for her students while making them feel important and worthy. She is an inspiration to the citizens of Lawton-Fort Sill.
