After 15 years inspiring and transforming students as an English teacher and an Activities Director, Carolyn did what she never envisioned doing: she left the classroom. The impetus for this decision was her attendance at the very first Link Crew training in 1993. After implementing Link Crew at two different schools and seeing what the program could do, she felt compelled to bring Link Crew to as many schools as possible. Carolyn began her fulltime work with Link Crew in 1999 when she was asked to be the Link Crew Program Director as well as one of its lead trainers. Carolyn brings her classroom experience as well as her passion for providing both meaningful experiences for educators and developing student leaders to trainings and workshops throughout the country. Her dynamic energy and enthusiasm create a magical experience for all who attend her workshops.
