She began in September 2014 and manages internal and external communications for the Center.  Event planning and execution is ongoing at the Center and Carol oversees key facets of each event as well as development in the business community.  Outreach programs vital to our community’s vulnerable residents also play a major role in Center operations and Carol handles community relations to support those efforts.
