One of her many superpowers is making our precious patients feel relaxed and comfortable while still keeping the doctors on task. She is a single mom to her 19-year-old son.

In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family and working out.

Carol and her spouse have three sons and five grandchildren. In her spare time, she likes spending time with her family, camping, kayaking, hiking, and growing flowers and veggies.
