The New Jersey Women’s Heritage Trail, which includes 94 historic sites, was published in 2004. From this project, a curriculum guide was developed to assist educators in incorporating historic sites associated with women into their daily lessons.

Buickerood joined the Alice Paul Institute staff in 2007. Before being named executive director, she served as administrative director and director of major gifts.
