A professional clinical psychologist, Dr. Moldawsky worked as a school psychologist in the Randolph Township and Montclair school districts.

She was an adjunct faculty member at Kean University and Rutgers Graduate School of Applied Psychology and was a supervisor of trainees at the Institute for Family Studies. 

She received her PhD from University of Iowa in 1953.
