She is a former top-line softball player and retired pharmaceutical representative.
Kiick led Wyoming in rushing three years in a row and was inducted into their athletics Hall of Fame in 1996. Miami drafted Kiick out of Wyoming with a fifth-round pick in the 1968 AFL-NFL draft. He became a starter as a rookie and led the AFL in rushing touchdowns in 1969 with nine.

In 1975, Kiick, Csonka, and future Hall of Famer Paul Warfield left the Dolphins for the World Football League (WFL) to play for the Memphis Southmen. The WFL folded, and Kiick returned to the NFL for his final two seasons, playing for Denver and Washington.
