Hello! I'm Carol

 

I'm a former Peace Corps volunteer turned mission-driven executive with an MBA. I care—about people, about the world we all share, and about making a measurable impact on the quality of all peoples' lives.

I am a dynamic, visionary, and inspirational team leader. I use my right and left brain interchangeably, solving problems like an engineer. Applying global understanding and influential communication skills, I lead teams in producing compelling brand stories and marketing strategies that increase awareness and motivate audiences to act. I lead with integrity, fire on all cylinders, and maximize my MBA to develop teams that deliver and engage clients, customers, and internal stakeholders.
