"Carolyn is an active member of the greater San Diego community who exhibits a strong social conscience and sense of responsibility to her fellow citizens. She has participated with the National City Historical Society in many events, and played a key role in both our Cultural History Project and Cultural Art Center. She currently serves as Chairperson of the National City Public Art Committee and board member of the Port of San Diego Public Art Committee.
Perhaps more importantly than all her civic activities, however, is her character. Carolyn is a person of high integrity and steadfast reliability. I have never known her to fail to meet a commitment or fall short of the expectations of her peers and colleagues. She has an in-depth understanding of the art world and decades of professional experience. A successful businessperson in her own right, Carolyn brings a level of expertise and dedication to her community involvement that is both refreshing and sorely needed"
