She received a Bachelor of General Studies degree at Roosevelt University in Chicago, Illinois, and a Master of Arts in Counseling from Norwich University in Northfield, Vermont.
Virginia Lynn Fry started her career as a full-time artist working on commissioned murals and other artworks in Boston. After her brother's death in an accident in 1979 at the age of twenty-one, she commenced using painting to express her grief. It was then when Fry developed an idea to combine medicine and art. This led her to hospice work where she could realize her plans to apply human creativity as a method to help people survive various life crises.

She also directs the Hospice & Palliative Care Council of Vermont and gives consultations to the Departments of Children & Families, Disabilities and Independent Living, and Education for the State of Vermont.
