About (Biography)

Carol was born in Louisville, Kentucky the year Middleground won the Kentucky Derby.  She makes the best darn Mint Juleps you've ever tasted.

She went to the University of Denver where she met her husband David.  After their wedding, they both went to the University of Missouri for a year but returned to DU for graduation.

After graduation Carol and David moved to Louisville, Kentucky.  David became a banker and then a CPA.  Carol received her post-graduate degree in accounting.  Daughter Katie was born in 1983.

Carol's first job was at the Housing Authority of Louisville, Kentucky where she was the Purchasing Agent and Cost Accountant.  That's where she developed a passion for housing and helping people find safe, secure homes.

In 1991 Carol decided that it was important to move to Florida before she found purple hair attractive so they moved to their home in Delray Beach. In 2003 they moved to Columbia, Missouri for Carol to become the CEO of the local REALTOR association. 

Carol likes to cook and entertain, read, scuba dive, and loves her hot tub.

Carol loves REALTORS.  "Although some days it is a bit like herding cats," she says " they are the most creative, interesting, fun-loving people."
