Carol was born in Tennessee and spent her early childhood in Georgia before moving to Santa Clara, California. She graduated from Fresno Pacific with a B.A. degree in Political Science. She met her husband, Rod, while attending college and they have been married for 48 years. They have a daughter, Janine, who lives in Santa Barbara.
Carol enjoys gardening, tending to roses, baseball games and traveling, especially to Santa Barbara to visit Janine and to SF Giants games in San Francisco. She also enjoys HGTV, with her favorite program being Fixer Upper.
Carol has been involved in church ministry for many years. In the early years of their marriage, she served alongside her husband who was a youth pastor and associate pastor. She has been a member of her home church for 27 years. She was employed as an executive assistant for some very interesting companies during her career including a stock brokerage company, architectural firms, and a computer hardware/software firm. However, she found her greatest joy and fulfillment in serving God and others in Christian organizations. She was on staff at Fresno Christian Schools serving as Executive Secretary to the Superintendent and Registrar, and on church staff teams for two churches in Visalia. She “retired” in 2011 after 26-1/2 years of service.
For some time Carol had been praying that God would show her how she might use her gifts for Him. She feels that Parkside is an answer to her prayers and truly a gift from God, and we feel that Carol is an answer to our prayers! Her wisdom, well-honed skills, professionalism and sweet spirit are a tremendous asset to our office team!
