During her high school years, Carol learned the printing trade at the Hope Pioneer Newspaper.  Upon high school graduation, she pursued working in the printing industry for various newspapers and printing companies, retiring in 2003.  In 1989, she graduated from the Moorhead Technical Institute (Commercial Art program) building her credentials as a computer graphic designer.  She also freelanced in this field, servicing various newspapers.
