Carolyn has an MSW in leadership/administration and spent many years as a finance executive and operations manager for a busy dental practice. She then spent a season coordinating the home education of her daughter, specializing in teaching mathematics. At the same time she developed a home business. She has run several successful businesses for herself and others. Her expertise in final stage planning was developed as her three parents were in their last seasons of life during the past 5 years. She was the Power of Attorney and Executor for her dad and stepmother, handling complicated interstate settlements.

Carolyn finds her most rewarding moments come when she is building teams and mentoring as well as when she develops creative solutions to challenging situations. Through A Family Hand she contributes that expertise to people who want wonderful lives despite limitations or complications caused by busy lifestyles, aging parents or geographic distances between loved ones.
