Harte was an English teacher while her Marine Corps husband was posted at various stations. When he was severely wounded during a second tour in Vietnam and transferred to Bethesda, Md., she began a second 20-year career in educational administration. She earned a master's degree from the University of Redlands in California and a second master's degree and an advanced graduate degree in educational administration from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. She served as an assistant high school principal, middle school principal, and director of community relations in a northern Virginia school district. The Washington Post nominated her as “Principal of the Year” for her innovative and results-oriented school-based programs and leadership skills.

Harte received a Life Membership Certificate and pin from MOAA, which led to her joining a MOAA Chapter and becoming involved with the Junior ROTC Scholarship Committee. She subsequently served as secretary, auxiliary liaison, and chapter president. She became active in a MOAA Council of Chapters and now serves as the auxiliary liaison for the council. She was a member of MOAA's Auxiliary Member Advisory Committee (AMAC) and was its chair during the last year of her term. She is committed to making sure that promises made will be promises kept.
