About CarolWNTIvyEmbelishment

Carol has been striding down the path of leadership her entire life.  

She is unconventional with a wicked smile, quirky wit and the keenest BS detector around.  Carol is direct, and engaging, putting her powerful sense of spirituality and clarity towards working from the inside out.  She takes risks while being light; she cares while pushing hard, all with a grace, warmth and deftness that eases the way.  Carol has a grounded presence that creates safety and trust for everyone around her.  Her deepest joy is to witness her clients embody the power and passion that they are.  

With a career spanning 25 years of management, training, and human development in the arts, non-profits, retail and ministry, Carol is working with clients around the world to grow leaders to own their power, passion and style.  

As a Prayer Chaplain with Unity of New York for 13 years, and the Director of that program for 9 years, Carol has experience walking with hundreds of people through all the drama and joy life has to offer.  She has trained dozens of people to listen, keep confidentiality, and to see others as whole.

Her secret superhero powers are slaying self-bullies and walking through fear.

A little first-person perspective...

I am a wife, sister, friend, leader, lesbian, cook, gardener, artist, and traveler. I have walked through sudden onset mental illness that has given me a glimpse into the depth of my darkness and the power that love and compassion can have on a healing journey.
