One week prior to the car accident, she was awarded her license as a Qualified Mental Health Professional by the Virginia Board of Counseling.  She is greatly missed by all of her coworkers and clients alike. Carolyn was an avid traveler that loved going and seeing new places. She was also an animal lover. Her dogs were her babies and she had a passion for rescuing animals as well.
