An active advocate for arts education statewide, Carol joined the Governor's School team in 2012 after working for nine years with Richland County School District One in the visual and performing arts programs. She holds her M.A. from New York University through the Gallatin School for Individualized Study, where she focused her interdisciplinary work on process drama, the management of teaching artist programs, and arts integration for high poverty settings. She currently serves as Chair of the Board of Directors for the South Carolina Alliance for Arts Education (SCAAE) and is a past President of the Board of Directors for Columbia Children's Theatre.

When asked the best part of her job, she is quick to answer, “Spending time with arts teachers and students from across the state—engaging in their communities and the creative endeavors that help nurture South Carolina’s emerging artists. It's inspiring.”
