She earned a Bachelor of Science from Grambling State University on December 17, 1971, and she later acquired a Master of Education in Administration and Supervision plus 30 from the Southern University of Baton Rouge on May 13, 1983. Her teaching career spans 40 years with the Plaquemines Parish School Board, commencing at Boothville High School and culminating with 39 years at "Dear Ole" Phoenix High School. She was a dedicated teacher for many years, and she pursued her passion for sports to become the Head Coach of Phoenix High Schoolgirls' softball and basketball team for 28 years with 2 state championships during her tenure. Artherene had an immense desire to educate children even beyond the traditional classroom. As a founder of Ironton Community Development The program, she was instrumental in the community's youth's preparation for the debut of the state's standardized testing and extending into her retirement as the Director of the Eastbank Recreation Program.

She is the loving grandmother of Tyrone, Ashton, Ashai, Micah, Mason, and Karaaz. She is the Godmother of Kirsten Broussard, Brandy Trufant, Dawn Green, and Kenaz Armand.
