Originally from New Jersey, Carolyn lived in Los Angeles for 30 years before moving to San Diego in 1997. She owned a printing and graphics company for 16 years, specializing in corporate image. In 1993 she started her marketing and public relations firm with partner, Judie Framan. This was a long-distance partnership, with Judie living in New Mexico. However, they loved working together and helped clients all over the Western States to grow their businesses. Specializing in marketing, customer service and sales, Carolyn worked with their clients to develop an internal and external image that empowered their clients to excel.

In 2001, Carolyn worked with several other leading women business owners and National University to bring an SBA grant to the San Diego business community in order to fund a Women's Business Center. Upon receiving the grant, Carolyn became the Director of the Women's Business Center of California (WBCC).

In just a year and a half, the WBCC as become a trusted resource - connecting women business owners, community service organizations, corporations and the banking industry. The WBCC provides short-term, inexpensive, high-quality entrepreneurial education programs for women business owners and small business corporate executives; in addition to excellent networking opportunities. The free counseling offered has helped over 500 clients and the WBCC has trained over 2,000 business owners and would-be business owners.

Carolyn's passion is helping the disenfranchised. To that end, the WBCC sought a grant from the City of San Diego to develop an entrepreneurial program for battered and homeless women. This exciting program has commenced with students from the YWCA, CCS and Rachael's House. The WBCC LifeSkills™ Program, YOU CAN!, helps women make choices in order to live a more independent life. The Program is a 30 hour commitment and students will come away with a 'business plan for life.' Living in Ranchita (out where God lost his shoes), Carolyn, her husband, Glynn, and their foster daughter have 4 horses and 2 Siberian Huskies.
