Live as though you were to die tomorrow. Learn as though you were to live forever. – Mahatma Gandhi
Carol’s gift of teaching is inherent in the spectrum of her work (writing, training, spiritual leadership, ...), reflecting a contemporary, life affirming, spiritually logical, practical and positive outlook on life. Peeling back the layers of presuppositions and rote ideas, making difficult concepts simple, she engages the attention of her audience, inviting them into a safe space, a spiritual atmosphere of oneness, freedom to think and embrace new possibilities, a place to find:
Knowledge of Your Power … Courage to Dare … Faith to Do
With a love for lifelong learning, a commitment to excellence, and her characteristic “outside the box” approach to thinking, Carol brings fresh air and challenging perspectives to every experience. Her personal passion is to inspire and lift people to a higher expression of life, share thoughts that will guide them to their purpose, knowing that when people fully awaken to who they are and why they are on the planet, they’ll begin to naturally share their gift, creating a better life for themselves and the world around them.
The self-described corporate survivor combines a 12-year tenure in corporate America, extensive training in adult learning, management and organization development with 30+ years in church leadership, biblical studies, seminary education, and life experience. Having pastored churches across denominations and racial diversity has given her a respect for different styles of worship and a broad and inclusive theological perspective.
Carol is a graduate of Cheyney University, Cheyney PA, Lutheran Theological Seminary @ Philadelphia, PA, and Eastern University’s Tony Campolo School for Social Change, PA (Paralegal Studies).
