Our Advisory Board Members
Carol is a retired physician who now invests in biotechnology start-ups and is gratified to advance prevention and treatment of disease.
Carol donates to the Women's Foundation of California which supports women and children locally. Globally, her philanthropy flows through Search for Common Ground ("Search"), the world’s largest nongovernment organization dedicated to building peace; she serves as an ad hoc advisor and source of feedback to the President on the President's Leadership Council.
Since 2012, Carol has participated in the Ecology of Leadership, a leadership training program based on principles of permaculture, a self-sustaining ecosystem. This program blends deep connection with nature; personal growth; practices of gratitude, intention, and envisioning; and community building. Serving on the facilitation team, Carol has put down roots in diverse relationships, mentored many, and learned the power sourced from the healthy interdependence of community.
Since 2017 Carol has been a member of the Women Donors Network, a group of women philanthropists who are committed to progressive social change and to building a just, equitable, and sustainable world. United by a shared vision of justice and equity for all, the Women Donors Network respond to leaders and movements fighting injustice, move funds quickly, and foster creative strategies that advance systemic change. The Women Donors Network is changing the face of American politics, incubating new ideas, investing in women’s leadership, and mobilizing resources to support work that builds women’s power—especially that of women of color.
Carol obtained her M.D. from the University of California, Irvine and her M.S. in Organic Chemistry from MIT.
