Born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Carol learned values of resilience, trustworthiness, hard work, and a love for assisting others from her parents. Working summers at her father’s office at a Waukesha Buick dealership from age 15, along with part-time 3rd-shift work for Northview Home in Waukesha and 1st-shift work for Roger’s Hospital in Oconomowoc, provided invaluable hands-on experiences that helped foster an eclectic skill set. After graduating from Northwestern Preparatory School, now known as Luther Preparatory School, in Watertown, Wisconsin, Carol earned an Associate of Science degree from Wisconsin Lutheran College, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Lawrence University, Appleton, Wisconsin. She achieved magna cum laude and became a member of Mortar Board.
Carol has spent her entire 37-year career in the insurance industry and prides herself on taking care of her clients’ unique needs. Carol resides in Elm Grove, Wisconsin with her husband John and cat Calloway Edward – Cal E for short. John and Carol have a son Christian currently studying to become a pastor at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon, WI. Christian is engaged to Raquel Freese, who is a teacher in Houston, TX. John and Carol also have a son Evan and daughter-in-law Megan who reside in Minnesota. Both Evan and Megan are teachers, Evan teaches 4-6 grade math and 9 grade geometry while Megan teaches the little lambs at pre-school.
Carol’s interests include music, running, ping pong (table tennis) and traveling to their little cedar log cabin on a pristine lake in northern WI.
