She also attended classes at the University of Minnesota for her continuing education. While in college she helped run a youth center for teens on probation and she later recalled it was her favorite job. For 27 years she worked for Hennepin County as a Finance Worker. While working at Hennepin County she met Lorraine Haney. After 32 years together, they married on April 8, 2021.

Roxane enjoyed music of all kinds and she love listening to stories about her nieces, nephews and grandchildren.
