Originally from Marquette, MI, Carol earned a BA in Communications and Political Science from Western Washington University. Upon graduation, she spent 20 years working in fund development non-profit management—with a focus on public health and higher education. After moving to Grand Rapids, Carol desired to support immigrants and refugees who, like her, had also recently resettled in the area. She soon heard of Treetops and immediately connected with the mission and the focus on creating community.
