Carol, born and raised in Calgary Alberta, Canada relocated to California in 1992. Since that time, Carol and her two children have lived in Elk Grove. Carol loves the Sacramento area due to its proximity to both Lake Tahoe, where she is an avid skier, and San Francisco where she can always have an exciting day. Carol’s passion is animals. She has two dogs and five cats – all of them rescues. Carol and her dogs are certified Pet Therapy teams. They spend time at various locations where the dogs can lift the spirits of whomever they come in contact with. With no reason to leave the area, Carol is now an American citizen!
