Carolyn is a native of Atlanta, Georgia. She attended Brevard Collage in Brevard, North Carolina where she earned an Associates degree in Art and studied early childhood education at the University of North Carolina in Wilmington.
Carolyn spent 1994 until 2003 living in northern Virginia working as a flight attendant until 1998. Carolyn raised her daughter, Emma, who is now twenty, and her son, Riley, who is now sixteen, as a stay-at-home mom for over ten years.
In 2003, she moved back to Atlanta. Carolyn began working part-time as a training coordinator in 2009 for iQuest, Inc. A year later she began working for Southern Gourmet Catering Company while working part-time as an assistant teacher at Carrington Academy during the school year. Carolyn became co-owner of the catering business until the company was dissolved in 2017. Afterwards she worked with an Alpharetta certified public accounting firm for a year, processing freight billing, invoice processing for accounts payable and receivable, processing biweekly payroll and tax return assembly. Carolyn took about twelve months off to spend time with her family. She took a part-time job with La Bella Maison, a clothing and décor store in Alpharetta, where she continues to work on weekends as she enjoys the company.
Carolyn found an advertisement on Indeed.com posted by Chandlee Construction seeking someone as a receptionist and administrative assistant for the parent company, Chandlee Holdings. She applied online and was given an interview and hired for the position. Carolyn began working for Chandlee Holdings in April 2019. She says she is very happy to be here. Everyone is so glad she is here, too.
