As a parent of three sons, Carol’s own “special” education comes from multiple sources, such as lectures, seminars, conferences and medical practicums. The most important source, however, has been other parents and professionals who have selflessly shared their stories of successes and failures. As a former Fortune 100 corporate recruiter and HR analyst, Carol has advocated on behalf of employees who faced employment and benefit discrimination. In retrospect, these experiences were mere stepping stones on her path towards advocacy.
For the past 25 years, Carol has been active within community organizations, such as Norwalk Hospital, Wilton Historical Society, Voluntary Action Center, Wilton PTA, Wilton Soccer Association, the Junior League, Wilton Public School’s Parent Advisory Board (PAB), American Cancer Society and the National Order of Disorders of the Corpus Callosum (NODCC). Currently working in operations support for private investors, Carol’s most noteworthy job continues to be raising her boys — facing their challenges of independence and, most importantly, witnessing their growth and ability to advocate on their own behalves. Carol continues to keep current on educational issues and medical advances through ongoing trainings.
