Carolyn (mostly known by Carrie) comes to Jesse Lee from New Life United Methodist Church in New Fairfield, CT where she has attended since she was born. She has taught Sunday School since she was in High School and has been very involved in many church programs in the past. Carrie earned a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education from Messiah College in Mechanicsburg, PA and Master's Degree in Youth Ministry Leadership from Huntington University in Huntington, IN. Before working at New Life she spent two years as the Protestant Youth Pastor at Culver Academies in Culver, Indiana and two years as the Director of Youth and Children's Ministries at Watertown United Methodist Church in Watertown, CT. She has taught all grade levels in public school, private school, and church settings. When not working she enjoys reading, cooking, photography, do-it-yourself and watching entirely too much television; often more than one of those at once. She counts it as a failure if she goes an entire year without seeing the ocean (usually in Maine) and would like to travel a lot more than her bank account allows.
