Hi! I'm Carol,
Swimming Hall of Fame
I have always loved DIY and knowing how to solve my own problems.
That's why I'm in the process of creating DIY courses so that YOU can learn to fix yourself too!
I was a competitive swimmer in university when I was getting my Occupational Therapy degree.
I missed the Olympics by 1/10th of a second in 1996 and was inducted to the McGill Sports Hall of Fame in 2012.
I love adventure, travel and learning about new cultures and ideas. I climbed Kilamanjaro in 2003, lived in South Korea for 5 years and have been scuba diving all over the world.
I love challenges and puzzles, especially when it comes to cooking and eating!
I try to spend most of my free time enjoying the company of my 2 kids and husband!In the Media
Hi! I’m Carol,
I started Evolving Homes after working in Home Health for 12 years.
I watched Medicare reimbursements shrink year after year, resulting in patients not getting the support they needed to set up their homes in the safest way possible.
I saw the struggle that caregivers were going through trying to increase water intake and getting their loved ones to exercise after the therapists had discharged.
I met overwhelmed and exhausted caregivers trying to figure out what their options were for care if they could no longer handle the stress.
I felt sad that the medical system was designed to be reactive rather than proactive.In the Media
How I can Help
I am a Certified Aging-in-Place Expert and specialize in designing beautiful, accessible spaces that are both functional and stylish.
I am also a Licensed Realtor because sometimes the cost of renovating a well-loved home is more than just moving into a more accessible space.
I am a Parkinson’s Wellness Recovery Therapist and passionate about exercise as medicine.Learn More about Aging-in-Place

“Carol gave us so many great suggestions and links to products that have made it possible for Mom to be more independent in grooming, toileting and getting up from the couch. We just moved to Jacksonville so her recommendations to local medical resources have been invaluable. Her helpful tips have make it so much easier to care for Mom at home instead of a nursing home. We really enjoyed having her come and learned a lot.”
“Carol is an awesome problem solver. She was a big help with overcoming challenges with cooking and cleaning after my amputation. She had so many great ideas to allow me to be as independent as I can as I adjust to my new circumstances.”
