Carolyn is an honors graduate of Arizona State University and holds degrees in journalism and political science. She enjoys birdwatching, reading sci-fi novels (“speculative fiction,” if she’s feeling hoity-toity) and snapping photos of the black bears that regularly trudge through her yard in New England.
