Carol is the president and facilitator of the Health Care Sales and Marketing Professionals that has been meeting once a month for over 14 years. It is designed to bring health care professionals together to help educate them and work together to help seniors. This group also does a fundraiser and give out checks twice a year to local charities. In addition Carol sets up the monthly Florida Guardianship Association meetings.
