She offers an enthusiastic, honest, all-inclusive approach to self-care. With more than 15 years of leading fitness classes and coaching personal development, she now brings the classroom experience within the comfort of your own living space.
Carolyn’s first career was engineering support. Her vocation began with technical writing and illustration, from the drafting board as a detail drafter to a computer generated mechanical designer, change documentation control from the file cabinet to electronic product data management, from writing program specific specifications to process improvement at the enterprise level.
Carolyn always looks at things from a different perspective.
As a non-traditional student, she received a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Philosophy & World Religions. Her post graduate work included psychology and then earned a Master of Science in Metaphysics. One common thread through her studies was her enjoyment of research and writing to weave patterns and stories. Her love of writing waited until recently to offer her first book as well as a series of booklets for the child in every heart.
Here are the parts; fitness instructor, change agent, and creator. Add the energy generated wife, mother, mentor, and coach to create the whole. Carolyn intends to unify practicality with technology to offer support & opportunity to build and benefit the best you.
