About Carolyn

Carolyn has enjoyed the passion of real estate on the Peninsula and surrounding areas over many years. Having been born and attending schools in Palo Alto, and after many corporate relocations around the country, she settled in Atherton where her three children attended schools in Menlo Park. She has held real estate licenses and has been active in Arizona and New York City, with extensive personal and professional experience in listing, purchasing, custom construction management, renovations and sales.

Carolyn's extensive network of peers and associates consider her a loyal, trustworthy, creative and passionate person who takes great pride in helping others accomplish their most important goals. She works closely with her clients to sell their existing homes and/or find the perfect homes to purchase. She has long had a particular focus on, and deep involvement in, philanthropic causes. This experience is reflected in her past and current board commitments. She actively serves on the boards of Victory Junction Camp (North Carolina) and the Serious Fun Network of Camps for children, founded by Paul Newman, and has been a long time member of the Board of Advisors of the Duke Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Carolyn serves on the board of directors of a successful bio-tech firm (CORD:USE Cord Blood Bank, Orlando, Florida) in addition to that of "Sweetriot" (a NY-based, dark chocolate/cacao company). She is a past regional advisory board chair of the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship, based in NYC. Carolyn's interests extend internationally - a global traveler, she is fluent in French, having lived and worked in France for an extended period.
