Fox-Tully had been teaching for fifteen years, before she reached the opportunity to become an Executive Assistant. The opportunity to become an Executive Assistant had emerged when she was teaching at Harcum College. While she was a professor at Harcum College, the former president left and a new individual took the role of president. Fox-Tully began to help the newly appointed president with a process known as middle-states accreditation. The middle-states accreditation is a process initiated by the Commission on Secondary Schools of the Middle States Association. The Middle States Association is a peer-administered, non-profit, non-governmental organization of diverse institutions devoted to the highest quality education for every student, which is to accredit institutions and to ensure constant improvement of educational services. Through working with the President of Harcum College with this accreditation, she realized that she liked the work that was involved and was willing to apply for the available positions.
