On March 1, 1981 the Unitarian Church of Evanston, Illinois ordained her.

Reverend Podulka served the Unitarian Church of Evanston, Illinois as a Minister of Religious Education from February 1, 1976 to February 1, 1985. She was a Pastoral Counselor at the Hospice of the Northshore in Wilmette, Illinois.
