Carolyn Wrightam, Business Manager
Carolyn Wrightam grew up in the country near Springfield Illinois with an older brother and sister and many pets. At 17, she was Rotary Exchange student to Bautzen, Germany, a charming village where she embraced the youth culture and learned to sing. Carolyn studied philosophy and linguistics at Augustana College and University of Iowa before moving to Longmont in 2008. She loves the local scenery and weather, and is awed by local wildlife. “The air, the experiences, and the people are so changeable and refreshing,” she says.
An organizer at heart, her off-time hobbies include planning group get-togethers which feature home-cooked meals, rich desserts, and strategic board games. She can often be seen reading class literature or fantasy fiction, but in a pinch will read any book within arms reach. She has a real fondness for all animals, especially Siamese cats, and plays host to Oswald, her 17-pound Blue Point rescued from a local shelter. Carolyn hopes one day to see all seven continents, design and manufacture her own wardrobe, and publish her most favorite recipes.
