New Advisory Board Member, Carole Scott, CarolesDesign
“I’ve always had a passion for art, drawing, coloring, thought I would have been an animator, artist for Disney:) then an abstract painter…”
Thank you Carole for becoming a member of our advisory board and is a long-time friend of’ mine. She is a Colorado native and graduated from University of Colorado, Boulder with a degree in fine art. Her favorite activities at C.U. was being a member of Ph Beta Phi national sorority and down hill skiing. She still loves to downhill along with snowboarding.
“After graduation I moved Breckenridge, Colorado, where I could enjoy the excitement of skiing in the Colorado Rockies.I worked for the local newspaper Summit County Journal. I enjoyed it so much I decided to become an entrepreneur and branch out on my own to open a small advertising agency. That’s when I met Sylvia Scott, founder of the Girls’ C.E.O. Connection. She had a custom design studio selling fabrics and designing and making all types of clothing and ski wear. Breckenridge was a very and many of the businesses were located in houses converted for offices and studios. The upstairs of the local travel agency, High Country Travel was a perfect location.”
“Many years later I was offered a position as Senior Designer for U.S. West Corporation. It was on the edge of our new technologies and I was with U.S. West for 12 years! Tthat launched my career into a completely different level. Corporations have benefits and training – real time… cherished all of my experiences! I moved on and spent 10 years as the Art Director for the National Stroke Association. Working for a large nonprofit had many beneficial learning experiences from that as well.”
“Once again I took my love as an entrepreneur and created another graphic design business, CarolesDesign. While I’ve been doing that for over 11 years I have pursued painting again…. quite a switch from computer to paintbrush. Yet it is very relaxing and spiritual to start all over again with my passion for art, color, and drawing.”
