About Carol

My background

I am passionate that families connect between the generations with the stories of their lives before it is too late. My life experiences as a journalist, teacher, writer, and editor, as well as a sister, wife, and mother have all come together today as a Personal Historian. 

My personal story

I have lived overseas in Thailand, working with Cambodian refugees, and in Nigeria, working at the Baptist Bible College of Eku and in people group research. Currently, I live in Northeastern Arizona with my husband and our little rez dog Charlie. 

My style

Memories are a potent slice of our lives. Recording those stories for the next generation helps define us today. Shortly after college graduation and marriage, my mother became ill and died. Her father died several months later, and the stories on that side of the family were totally gone. So, I learned the loss of pictures without names, smiling faces without stories, forgotten children and their pets playing in gardens of long ago.
