Carol was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and was always performing as a child.  She attended Cumberland and Eastern Kentucky University as a music major and continued to live all over the south before settling in Florida in the 80’s.  Working as an associate producer on a local weekend show, she booked a Casting Director and a very popular Community Theater Director on the show.  The Casting Director signed her and started sending her out and the stage director put her to work producing a very successful production of “Arsenic and Old Lace”.


Carol started working on the craft of acting and continues to train to this day.  She has had the opportunity to play many interesting roles such as a Vietnam nurse, politician, crazy mother, Madam, and the evil wicked Agnes to mention a few. As a result she has won three Crystal Reel Awards for best actress.


In addition to her acting career, she has 30 year experience in the field of Advertising and Marketing.  Carol is blessed with a wonderful family, three sons, and beautiful daughter in law, two grandsons, two granddaughters and five adorable great grandsons.


She is a member of SAG-AFTRA, WIFT, SASS and is a 25 year member of Altrusa International Orlando-Winter Park, with a primary focus on literacy and support of women and children in need within our local community.
