Biography

Carol has had a life-long interest in all things relating to survival. Even as a child in San Diego, she carried around a small canvas bag with a bottle of water and a piece of fruit, a pocketknife, a flashlight and a deck of cards. Later she enjoyed backpacking, where she could carry around a lot more stuff and even got to stay out overnight! More recently she enjoys being a “survivalist” and pondering what life would be like in a post-apocalyptic world. Joining the Army at the age of eighteen, she was the first woman to attend the U.S. Army Chemical School, and was trained in CBR, or Chemical, Biological and Radiological laboratory techniques. Carol has participated in two 10 day backpacking/survival trips and is a certified scuba diver. She has a private pilot’s license and has completed a few 50k races, several marathons and many, many races at shorter distances. She graduated from California State University Northridge with a Bachelor of Science in Biology/biotechnology and has worked as a Clinical Laboratory Scientist for most of her adult life. Carol has three daughters and a son, and lives in Colorado Springs with one of her daughters, a granddaughter and her newly adopted grandson.
