Carolyn was born and raised in Portland, and attended Oregon State University. Marriage to an Air Force officer, took her away from Oregon, and after living in California, Arizona, and St. Louis Missouri, she ended up putting down roots in the Washington DC area for 30 years. Her career path took her into retail, first as an Interior Designer, and then into Executive Management of the high-end Home Furnishings & Interior Design business that she and her husband owned for many years. Returning "home" to Oregon in 2006, after closing the business, was a dream come true. She feels truly blessed and is grateful everyday to be back in Oregon.

Carolyn was introduced to Unity at the age of 7, when her mother was seeking an alternative to their Lutheran roots. She attended Unity churches wherever she lived, and found her church home in the DC suburbs, Unity of Fairfax, in Oakton, VA. There she was active in many volunteer activities, including singing in the church choir and being a member of the Board of Trustees for 6 years. She is now very grateful to be a part of New Thought Center for Spiritual Living, a dynamic Spiritual Community, where she continues on her spiritual journey.


My heart overflows with gratitude, love, and joy as I remember the countless magical moments I have shared with my spiritual family.

It's important to me that our community both "reaches in" and "reaches out"--deepening our direct spiritual experience of Oneness so that connection with and service to the wider world come easily
