Qualified as a Specialist in Drama and French to teach K-OAC, Carol has taught Drama to ages seven to twenty since 1972. She remains excited and stimulated by the natural creative genius of children and youth. Formerly the Head of Arts at Listowel District Secondary School, Carol is the author of many One-Act plays written for youth and the facilitator of countless social-issue-based collectives written with students. These plays have been produced in high schools across Canada. A full-length musical, Superwomen, which Carol co-authored with Arlene Ostien, was professionally produced by Huron Country Playhouse.

Carol has presented Drama workshops on a variety of topics for children, youth and teachers in schools, arts camps, drama festivals, and the Council of Drama and Dance in Education  conference and is a drama festival adjudicator. She has been vice-president of the Board of Directors for the Blyth Festival Theatre and is proud of her role in the continuing process of nurturing the creation of new Canadian plays.
