Carol’s social work career started in Britain in the 1970s, where she worked for both Social Services Departments and a voluntary agency doing child protection and adoption and fostering. Carol has a Certificate of Qualification in Social Work and a Diploma in Child Care Law and Practice. Carol moved to the United States in 1993 to become Executive Director of Adoption Options, a position she retained until March 2012, when retirement saw her move to different areas of work, including training for the Consortium for Children in California. Returning to her love of working directly with families, Carol is now employed as a part-time adoptive family caseworker, assessing families and assisting with placements.

Carol is happily married to Jim, a Scotsman she met on a plane going to Spain! When not working, Carol enjoys tennis, golf, good friends and travel - cruising, road trips, short stays and long stays! She says travel is the fun part of life!

Carol still takes most of her notes in shorthand and still doesn’t trust the calendar on her phone, preferring her Filofax, heavy and bulky though it may be!
