Carol and her husband, Dennis, built their Frost Pond home in Jaffrey over 20 years ago as a part-time refuge from life in Cambridge, MA. Carol earned a B.A. in music history from the University of Michigan, and spent her career as an academic administrator for liberal arts universities. In 2003, she joined the board of the Monadnock Conservancy, serving first as Chair of the Stewardship Committee and later as Vice President and then President.
Carol has enjoyed a lifetime passion for the out-of-doors, having grown up on a river in small town Illinois. She discovered birding after her move to Jaffrey, and is particularly interested in bird sounds and song.
