Team Work Gets It Done

After teaching elementary and pre-school for many years, Carleen decided to change her career path. Her love for both education and the outdoors brought her to Grand Classroom where she is now working as the Sales Administrator. Carleen grew up in on the beach Massachusetts, making any beach one of her favorite outdoor experiences. However, after moving to Charlottesville, VA in 2003 she fell in love with the mountains and all they have to offer. Now, you can find Carleen hiking and exploring the mountains whenever she has a moment, or a Saturday free with her family. Free moments are not something Carleen has a lot of; she stays busy taking her two children, Dylan and Ellie, to all of their sports and activities. When Carleen is not busy with her family, you will find her on the tennis court, or enjoying time with friends. This email address is being protected from spambots.
