She traded short term Treasury Notes for Morgan Stanley in New York City and then, returned to Chicago to join the Futures Exchanges. She was a member of both the Chicago Board of Trade and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, and ran the floor operation on both exchanges for Sanwa Bank.

Page and her husband moved to Florida in January of 2000 and met Floyd and Flo Johnson when she and Michael  needed a home for Satchel’s Last Resort, a last chance animal rescue and sanctuary they founded.  It’s a cause that was very dear to the Johnsons, and Page and Michael not only rented property from them for the rescue, but also became their friends. Page is honored to have been asked by Flo to join the board of the Johnson Foundation.
